(What do you know, the only part I didn't touch, because it worked fine when I pulled it a year ago.)

Anyways, I want to upgrade the stock distributor. I looked at the ebay cheapies, but I don't see something for $60 working for long. SO, what do you guys recommend? MSD guts inside my stock one? A whole MSD/pertronix..etc distributor? I've got a budget less than $200 to work with.

Suggestions?
A lot of guys are running economy distributors w/a module upgrade w/o incidence.
