Moonie's dizzy must work fine or he would have had problems by now. Only his mechanic knows for sure what was done an he is the one to ask questions to, anything else is pure speculation.

The late model distributors that have vac advance are timed the same as the Euro at 4000rpm; they too work using mechanical advance on boost. This function allows for more advance during cruise which is lost when vac goes away. This is covered in the manual for that year. Don't speculate, run the part numbers to see what you have and follow the manual.
I agree this is getting too deep for my simple mind and my XDI comment started another debate that would be good for another thread.
