Until I go twin plug and down the rest of this slippery slope I'm gonna stay with what I got.

Seems there are differing opinions about distributor vs non-distributor. What's the deal? Ben likes the 12 plug dizzy and 356 likes the MSD. What are the positives and negatives?
Twin plug trumps an MSD but then that twin plug update trump card is probably 10X the $$$ for the right MSD system.
Non distributor trumps distributor but again its the $$$.
I guess that's the cool thing about Porsche's - we can spend all the money our wives will let us spend on em or, all the money our wives don't know we are spending on em.
