I need to get a new timing light. I want one with the digital readings to show total. Any brand recommendations?

I own 2 Sears Penske's, one is the standard type and the other has the dial on it for total advance. If I test the two, side by side, there's a difference of about 1 or 2 degrees. Wich one is right, I dunno. For my cars, 1 or 2 degrees isn't going to make a big difference. But if I was running nitrous or a supercharger, that would be a big difference and I would look to a top notch one like a Snap on or one sold through Summit ect..

Snap-On! If you buy good tools, they may cost more up front, but you will have them for life. PS - you no longer need to buy Snap-On tools from the truck. Check out their web site.

I use a Hella timing light with rev-counter and dwell angle meter. Don't know if they're sold in the States, though...
