    I have heard mixed reactions about aftermarket dist over the years. Of course anything with MSD's name on it is not what it use to be but I thought I have heard that the stock OEM version was the way to go? Any chance anyone knows if this is true with the fox body style with the TFI built in?

    Here's the thing.....they all owned by MSD. Mallory may be individual, but yea...msd is monopolizing it.

    I've never really understood the need for "high performance" dizzys on our cars. I've ran the new aftermarket Richporters without any issue in my 95 and my 89.

    agreed performance wise which is why I ask. I am considering switching as the holley efi system is easier with the fox style with the TFI built in.
