From what I've read, most people in here would strongly advise against using any of procomps gear.

Personally I haven't used any of it so I do not have a opinion, but I know this subject has come up quite alot recently.

Do you really want to know what the best distributor is, or maybe the most appropriate distributor for your application? You will find the latter will be much more useful. You need to provide more info on what the application is, desired results and budget.

As for Procomp, maybe another forum catagory could be started that contains product reviews? This could be a good idea to keep all the user feedback on an item or manufacturer in clear threads rather than scattered through many threads. It could also help head-off needless repetition of commonly asked questions about "how good it this..." or "is this manufacturers quality acceptable", or "is this supplier any good" etc.

Should make a poll for brand quality and make it a sticky in this section. That way everyone would be able to see just how little regard a lot of folks have for chinese rubbish cast parts.

Pro should be added to swear filter .. Lol..I wouldn't buy a wheelbarrow off them !!
Depending on application?? Check http://www.jegs.com/c/Ignition-Electric ... 9/10002/-1 or http://www.summitracing.com
Anything there would be o/k..Then decide if you want to buy local or off ebay ??
Freight from U.S should be around $50.00..
