COMP Cams® Front Drive Distributor Kit For GM LS Engines Converts From Distributorless Computer System To Standard Distributor Ignition

Memphis, TN – A new front drive distributor kit from COMP Cams® provides an alternative to installing a complete computer and fuel injection system when trans­planting a late model LS engine into an older street performance vehicle. The kit is also designed so that racers can now run an LS style engine in classes that require a distributor ignition system. Enjoy the performance and durability of the GM LS series engine with the simplicity and tune-ability of a distributor and carburetor.

With the conversion kit, LS engines are now able to utilize a standard Small Block Ford distributor ignition system and a carburetor with a belt-driven or electric fuel pump. It also allows for timing adjustment and changing of the mechanical advance curve. Kit components include a timing cover conversion kit, distributor, ignition box, ignition, plug wires, crank pinning tool, balancer, and necessary components.
