It's more about the weak distributor gear than anything else. This is specific to 2.3 turbo motors. Lots of stories on TF about sheared off teeth on the dizzy gear, of course most of these guys race their cars. I went with the M86E when I built mine and I beat on it, for sure. Haven't had a problem in 6K miles. I just tend to err on the side of caution. I would suggest to Piranahbite, call Chip @ BigR and ask his opinion.
