What brand is the best replacement? Probably going to have to replace mine for the 4th time and i want it to be the last!!! HAs anyone had problems out of an msd box burning up their opti's? The original cap i replaced when the water pump went, then the 2nd cap went when the coil lead burned through the front of it, 3rd was the accel cap that was bad out of the box, now i think the accel optispark has gone bad after about 100 miles. Thinking GMPP because i didn't really have trouble out of the first one, just swaped it for preventative maint. and have caused alot more maint. i am afraid. Anyway does anyone else have a msd box on their opispark???

Stop replacing just the cap.
Bite the bullet and buy a GM complete opti-spark.

WOW that's good. I have been holding off on installing my MSD 6AL system. I was running on my previous 94 Z28 A4, with a a1cardone reman opti and it worked great.
My current 94 Z28 A4 only has 53K original on the car. And i got a Delphi complete assy waiting to install. But some people have said the MSD 6AL burns the opti up. But I think i am going to install the MSD 6AL on my Z soon with the factory opti. And see how she does:D
Been running an MSD 6A for 10 years. No problems. Stock opti.
