I'm pretty sure at least 2 people here are in the build stages using that kit.

I've used procomp components myself. Everything (box/coil) but not the dizzy. It's the same quality as an MSD analog (6 series unit). The MSD has a s**tload easier way of setting the rev limit

Quality just as good as any other. I know Montyv8 (in the process) CH7472 and Neek are actually running the units with no problems.

Before anyone gets too excited and rubbishes thecranks any further why don,t you chill out and wait until someone has one up and running. I agree some of the pro comp gear is less than stellar but there is no value in bagging the cranks until you have actually run one and broken it. I,m one of the guys who has purchased one and so far the quality seems ok and the machining is some of the best i have seen. If and when mine breaks i,ll be the first to shitcan it.

I would still want to know if any waranty. If an electronic box or distributor fails, it really is an easy fix, but if a crank breaks, there is way more to worry about. Still, i am believer on not lynching anyone if there has been no problems. I recon this is one product though, that will be fine.
