    40500 - JEGS Forged Mopar Vacuum Advance Electronic Distributors is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems like a good distributor Fit and finish is excellent. The true test will be mileage. So far I only have break-in time on this distributor but it's running great out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Unit Bought this as a less expensive alternative to an MP billit unit as the Proform unit I purchased broke up badly starting at 3,000 RPM. This unit performed well and picked up~10 HP over a stock unit on the dyno on my Mopar 392 Poly Stroker
