Look what came in the mail today!

I got my new Twin Plug distributor for a 2.0 aluminum case delivered this morning! complete with cap, rotor, mag pickup, etc. Thanks to Henry at Supertec and Aaron / BurnBros - looks to be a very nice product and I can't wait to reassemble the engine!

Now I'm just left thinking about the rest of the ignition: 2x MSD, 2x 6 pin CDIs, or fit a petronix to fire 2x 3 pin CDIs

Regards,
Andrew M

Very nice Andrew!

Fire the two MSD or crane boxes.

As Henry at Supertec said - not cheap! I think it came in ~ $1,500 US, but that includes:
- Distributor
- Mods to fit cap - not just a simple ring fitted to the top of a normal distributor
- Cap & Rotor
- Recurving to my specific application
- Magnetic trigger

Overall - I feel that the price was pretty fair.

Regards,
Andrew M

$1500 is a steal.

ONE MSD 6AL AND 2 BLASTER II COILS AND YOU'RE GOOD TO GO


Although I highly recommend running the distributor the way we built it, if you really want a Pertronix unit installed, send it back and I'll build you another distributor.

No issues Henry - I've decided to go with the MSD setup, have ordered the parts, and am set to go.
