Anyone ever install one of these?

Or are there better alternatives?

Yeah, it's a different version/brand of a pertronix ignitor unit. I don't know that brand, but the pertronix unit is a good upgrade. Ideally you want a pertronix ignitor II.

I need to do this one day. I had Pertronix in my Torino and it works nicely.

The Ignitor III is over kill for our vans. Some tachs also don't seem to like it. The II is he best choice.

Ignitor I works great, but it has a flaw in that leaving the key in the on position will kill it. And the II has the adaptive dwell feature.
