Csi programable 59D A+ distributor with vacuum advance

Only has a few thousand miles on it, works great, zero complaints, but going turbo.  Normally about $275, wanting $150 plus shipping.

Negative ground? and do you know if I would need to change anything else like the coil or leads?

Just replaced points and condenser but want to go electronic at some point and this seems like a decent deal.

Don't know much about the CSI, is it comparable to the 123 and/or others?

It's similar to the 123, and it works well.....you'll need a 3 ohm coil to work with it.

Thanks Dave, I just realized it's the A+ version. I got all distracted by the pretty pictures and the fact that I have been wanting one. Took a while for it to sink in I guess.  :-[

It's like the 123, but honestly probably has better curves.  I can post up the curves for anyone interested.
