I have sold at least 100 of them and i have had 6 that had problems 2 with the distributors 3 boxes and 1 coil and i know for sure 1 was the customers fault because when he sent the kit back to me and i looked at it the wire's going into the box was melted the others i don't know i just replaced them for the customers.

I don't think there bad for the money .

Now there is another kit called a mega fire kit that is a killer kit put's out about 20% more spark than the MSD 6 al box . well that is what they say anyway i have sold so far 62 unit's and not one back and all of the local guy's that have them are very happy with them cost a little more but not a lot.

Hope this helps some.

I have dealt with 2 Pro Comp distributors belonging to acquaintences, both would not fire, new ou of the box. Funny though, the ones they sent back to then did...

Default procomp distributor

The early procomp stuff was very inconsistant, it has gotten better though. I've had MSD problems many times and won't use one again
