If its only out of those two go for the bosch for the dizzy.

as for the leads don't go for either get some Top Gun or Eagle leads. they last longer and provide better ignition and for the falcon you'll be able to get either set for under $65.

while both may be more expensive they are both better quality and last longer (usually).

also when ur putting the new leads on wrap some electrical tape around the leads where they come into contact with the tappet cover. this will prevent them from "arc"ing to the cover. it will also help stop wear from the contact.

apparently topgun are real puss ay, they break after a while.
this is what i have heard quite often on this site.
i recommend bosch, never had a problem with it, and we are service agents for them, and they supply good products.

i've had top guns on my falcon for over a year now they have been on and off a number of time for different reasons and not once have they broken. i never have any problem with miss firing. and they show no signs of cross arcing

Never, ever, EVER buy Top Gun leads! I paid a packet for mine, put them on, took one straight off for some reason....and it broke! I took it back to get it fixed, and then the next week when a mechanic took them off, they ALL broke AGAIN!
