You should be able to trust that seller. It's Rick Ehrenberg, the Mopar guy from the magazines. I have bought some items from him before, no complaints.

The steel gear isn't necessary... also since the kit doesn't look like the old MP kit with orange box and distributor, I would want to know what the curve on the distributor is.... if it was an original MP distributor, it will have the 10L governor, and one light spring on one weight so it's all in at 1200 rpm... which would mean you will have to get some springs and elbow grease so it will be streetable...

I vote No. Sure, the distributor might be "100% new", but it's a "100% new" Chinese knockoff (none for me, thanks; I'm driving…) and a generic copy of a not-very-good ignition box (with typical hyped-up claims: "made by an original Mopar / Chrysler vendor, but with latest super-reliable all-silicon SMD technology" Oh yeah? {{citation needed}}, as they say on Wikipedia. I'd bet money against it. Oh, and some vague handwaving about "street/performance advance curve". No sale there, either. All for an unrealistically high price.

Better and much more cost-effective: HEI upgrade with a new genuine Chrysler distributor.

I have done the HEI conversion from the lean burn and I'm satisfied with it. It was cheap and easy. The key is to get the advance curve dialed in for your application. I vote HEI.

How does Pertronix electronic ignition compare to the Mopar one?
