absolute crap!!
i had one recently in my rod ,
firstly i had the bottom of the shaft machined down to suit the later model block and the steel was very soft compared to the factory dizzy (machined down a factory one at the same time )

once i fitted it i ran the engine for no longer than 2 minutes before it started to back fire ,
i shut it down and the checked every thing ,
fired it up again and it ran for a few minutes again and then started back firing again
save up your money and buy a decent one ,
ive heard nothing but bad things about pro comp

spend the extra and get an MSD dizzy. They may be say $500 compared to a pro comp at $250 or so but the extra cash buys you a whole lot more distributor

Garbage , save up and buy a real dissy , the metal that they made out of is rubbish . if it lasts more than twelve months you will have no advance curve left , the advance weights wear away . you get what you pay for

An engine builder I know tells me that Procomp stuff is nothing but crap. He advised me not to touch any of it.

My engine builder has finally convinced a customer to take back to place of purchase a procomp dizzy.The customer is doing this only after reading about them on this forum.

Re: procomp dizzy, module, igintion (your thoughs and experience)

Here we go again. I have used nothing but there stuff for the last 5-6 years and never had on ounce of trouble. All of the cars i have had them in all made good power ( 450 - 600 hp and never broke down. Now i don't know what it is but that's all i use in any of my customers car's and a lot of them have been on the road for years. I have never had better service form a dizzy.
