Just pulled the plug and bought this kit yesterday.

4 preset curves via dip switches. Don't like those and you can use your laptop to make custom curves and a 3D map.

I didn't get in on the 123Ignition group buy and stumbled upon this setup.

As a plus it comes with wires and a new coil and can be used with boost.
$360.

I'm using L-Jet for fuel and it'll fire the injectors when the coil collapses just like a stock distributor.

Nice to see another option out there,will the unit clear the engine tin on a T4?,how do the vacuum pickups work? I see 4 of them?.
Should be a good unit,good luck with it.

About same mods as if installing a Mallory or MSD distributor, no big deal.

The old Mallory was a drop in. But regardless, you're right, it's no big deal.

Can you post a pic of the tin mod? This looks interesting...

All you is give the tin a med sized dimple where it interferes with the larger distributor body. Easiest to locate the spot when you try to slip the larger dist in. I think I used a hardwood dowel and a hammer.
