HG, I've never heard of the personnaly, but I checked the ones on ebay that you are talking about and also their website <a href="http://www.stingerelectronics.com/sting_products/products_intro.asp" target="_blank">Stinger Products</a> and they seem to be more of a stereo mfg rather than a high performance mfg. Personnaly, I would stay away from anything that's not too well known, just to be safe.

Stinger is (was?) good quality ignition. The company was started in the 1970's by Bill Hays, who was the owner of Hays Clutches. He sold the Hays clutch business and started the Stinger Ignition business (Midway Industries). He wanted to call it Hays Ignition, but was unable to, because of contract with Mr. Gasket. Then, a few years later Mr. Hays founded the Centerforce Clutch Company. Midway Industries is alive and well in Prescott, Arizona but I don't think the Stinger Ignition brand is still around. It is pretty amazing how many changes there have been in the past 30 years or so in the High Performance Aftermarket Automotive industry.
