I have run well in the 10s at over 130 mph with a stock distributor with no real problems. I think I would stay with a stock one and spend your money on something better for performance.

The best distributor you can put in your car... is the OEM one.

You could pick up an OEM replacement distributor from your local parts store.

Never heard of Richporter but if it is a OE replacement and has good electronics it should be fine and should work for you later down the road also.
