“Recycled,” July 2009 – Page 64
“The Factory Ignition System is anemic and problematic, and as we found out, the overseas H.E.I. Conversions were questionable at best. The D.U.I. Is tuned specifically to our engine and now our V-8 revs like it should. The increase in reliability, power and torque is well worth the effort and expense.”
