Mechanical Advance vs Vacuum Advance

912 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Guest
Hey everyone, if you have seen my other dist post u know im about to buy one. I have always thought that vacuum advance is better than mechanical for street cars but I dont really have any reason since i dont know too much about em. Can someone give me some advice? If mechanical advance is better than the vacuum then I guess I should go with MSD dist bc it is cheaper also. But if vacuum advance is a must or something I should really go for then i need to go for the mallory. Help please!

I think you'll be wasting your money! For the street it'll be hard to beat a stock Duraspark or Petronix. Get an Accell blueprinted series, they come with extra mechanical advance springs and adjustable vacuum diaphram. Cheap and hard to beart! Ask camachinist!

You can do anything you want to......ONCE!
