    Does it say where it's made?

    When I took the front cover off my original TFI years ago the electronics were covered in some clear silicone/gel material that you could see right through.
    I'm pretty sure,it's been awhile.

    I found this article if anyone is still reading up on this..
    https://www.carthrottle.com/post/nr4663d/

    also, If I'm gonna go the relocation route... whats peoples opinions on these two kits?

    http://www.mccullyracingmotors.com/i...s/Page2271.htm
    and
    http://fatfoxx.com/products.php ...KIT 423706A

    Im leaning toward the Mccully racing kit, even though its big $$$... it just looks like the easiest instal for me. (I live In a condo and gotta do the mods in the underground...ugh!)

    ....most of you seem to be commenting on stock Ford TFI/Distributers... I have a MSD dizzy... will a Ford TFI hook up into an MSD?? Is there any "performance" TFI's out there worth looking into if Im gonna be spending the money anyways??

    It came with the car so...haha... I was actually thinking that when I install my Holley Terminator X that I might switch to Holley's dual sync dizzy...it looks like it removes the TFI completely... but I still gotta read up on it all..lol

    TFI is part of the reason I'm looking into converting to EDIS. No conclusion yet.

    McCully offers two relocation kits.
    A lower cost one and a more expensive one that mounts a gutted TFI on the distributor.

    When I first read about the more expensive kit,they required the customer to send them a donor TFI,working or not,now it looks they supply a new gutted TFI in the kit.
    The expensive kit is the best.

    In the past I've read nothing but good things about their kits on corral.net.
    As for "performance" TFI's I saw the inside of an Accel TFI years ago and the electronics inside looked like junk compared to what I saw inside my original Motorcraft TFI.
