I've never had a problem with an Accel products before and they have been around the high performance auto parts business since as long as I can remember back into the 60's. BTW, just about any business has to advertise in order to sell their products nowadays.

Yep, most of the Accell line is pretty good in my book. Coils are real good. As the roundman said, they have been around since the 60's.
I think that there is a corporate tie-up to Echlin which is an old, old ignition parts company that makes real good products too.

thanks...

Quick ? though! If you were to buy parts for your car would you go with Mallory or Accel?

My idea was to do all ignition and fuel with Mallory.

And get Accel fuel injectors. BTW i am doing a complete rebuild on my car.

And the advertising thing; you dont see motorcraft advertising for their products! People just know the name! and buy it. LOL, just my 2 cents on that deal[sm=goodidea.gif]
