Hi folks, just new here. Does anyone have any experience with the Performance Distributors E.I kit which they have recently put on the market? I tend to keep things as original as I can, but I could be open to a good ignition upgrade if it is worthwhile. I am a conservative driver, hardly over 100kph but I would appreciate better cold starting, cold idling and, with the price of fuel here in New Zealand, improved economy! There seem to be a lot of options out there, some cheap and probably a waste of time and others not so cheap. I read a couple of good articles about the P.D unit and it sounds like they have created something decent that is easy to install. Not cheap though, especially to freight to N.Z. I have linked the stories below. The second article states that the unit requires a constant 14 volts to function reliably and I am not sure whether my old alternator delivers that. I sent a question to P.D about this but they didn't respond like some places don't. ... wires.html

That ignition system has NO vacuum advance. So I believe fuel economy will suffer.
