    The optispark IS the distibutor. Is uses a plastic wheel inside of it with 720 tiny ass holes around the perimiter that an infrared eye sees through to time the spark to within half a degree. You couldn't stick half a tooth pick through those holes they are so small and when one gets wet or dirty at all there goes good distributor functioncause the eye can't see through it. Top that off with it being mounted UNDER the water pump. . .you get the picture

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    anyway, it's an LT1 thing, and most of us were smart enough to buy no LT1 cars

    forgive my ignorance but did you say on his mods that he deleted his maf sensor? what is the purpose of that is seams like it would hurt performance. or did you mean the free mod with the resistor wire in the intake air temp sensor? or perhaps a aftermarket airfilter or screen delet on the maf.
