No but i have used the 1 and 2 version of it and was very pleased with it.JMO
They do have there down falls but everything does. You don't even have to pull the distributor in most case anyway. What are you thinking about putting it in ?

You won't want to go and leave the key on for very long without it running it can burn a set up.
You could alway's keep a set of points or a extra pertronix if you had one. Just in case but they really never gave me any trouble it still in the cars and still running down the road.JMO

Sounds like most are in favor---I've used the pertronix 2 with success,but the igniter3 is pretty new to the market so that's why I was asking--Its easier to install,has MSD and rev limiter!

I've hd a Pertronics thing in my
'69 cutlass for almost 10 years, no problem, but I do have a question ;;I left the key on and it completely drained the battery. Will that hurt the Pertronics "thing" like with a points system where it burn the points, I had an electronic ignition ( MOPAR) go bad once when that key was left on ?????
