Default Re: ignition upgrade

About 18 years ago I installed a new 009 distributor with a Bosch blue coil in my 1600. Within 6 months of that I installed the Petronics ignition. I've never had a problem with it .The car is damn near a daily driver. First time I fired it up with the Petronics I noticed it started quicker and it idled faster. Since installing it I gapped my plugs at .032. I am very happy with it. I've never heard of one going bad and the owner of the shop that I hang out at sez every car he builds gets a Petronics in it. I have always carried a set of points and condensor in the car but have never used it. Keep in mind I carry a lot of spare parts in my bug it's a 56yr old car.
