    Yes I got a DUI (Davis Unified Ignition). Its a hand made distributor with a curve for your engine specs. Supposed to work better since most distributors have a assembly line curve. I plan to drop it in Sunday so I will let you guys know how it works.

    I have a crane adjustable vacuum advance/curve kit. I haven't installed it yet but supposedly it's the same deal--you can tune in whatever curve you want.

    I'm going to do it when I put my truck back together (it's in multiple pieces now and soon to be in many, many more).

    Man you had me thinking that you were writing us from the Gray bar hotel. Thats cool that you got a DUI distributor. Good luck with it.

    Hey this is FUN!

    I also thought you were a dumb @$$ before reading the post. I was about to rip you a new hole. Both my sister and best friend were killed drinking and driving.... glad to see that wasn't what you were doing!

    The DUI is great... especially when you don't own a GM product to drop a standard HEI into... Ford ignitions are junk, &amp; GM did do a few things right [​IMG]

    My Ford has chevy parts! it's all good!
