Default Want To Upgrade Distributor Cap & Rotor, Plugs, Plug Wires, etc.

My 94 Ex has 176k miles. I changed my timing belt, drive belts, oil, water pump, &tranny fluid yesterday. The car runs stronger than ever. The old timing belt looked good, but didn't have very much tension. I also retareded the timing a bit, it pulls harder then before.

But my distributor has a slight leak. SoI wanna replace the dist cap & rotor, plugs & plug wires. I was thinking of a MSD set up, possibly with an external coil. Any have any feddback, or maybe another suggestion. Thanks!

Waste of money for your setup IMO. Buy OEM.

[/align][/align]having this setup in my car, I disagree..(external coil, etc)[/align]the difference is subtle, but it definately made my car run smoother, idle, etc...[/align][/align]...plus you could regap your plugs for a bigger spark. I'd get a aftermarket grounding kit along with this...[/align]
