I actually did both!!!! After my engine rebuild I ran the Electromotive XDi crank-fired inductive system. For nearly two years, and 12,000 miles it ran flawlessly. However, I always wanted the largish 12-point dizzy. At the time of my rebuild, I just didn't have my hands around all of the parts needed to run the big dizzy, so I went with the tried and true Electromotive system (soon to be for sale) due to it being a "turn-key" solution. So when I discovered the JB Racing twin-plug dizzy, I just had to have it...

Let me know if/when it goes up for sale. Like you, I am looking for a turn key system until I find a classic looking solution.

I too have the Electromotive crank fired system on my car, and have about 11,000 trouble free miles, as I drive the 964T quiet often during the warmer months.
