We have been running the Pertronix in our Z for two years now and have been very pleased. Many have had them longer and are happy. But many are happy with the 280z dist. as well.

Go with the dist. that is cheaper, or easier to find. In my mind, as long as its electronic ignition, you can't go wrong.

Re: ZX Dist. is nice also:

Hey michele, I've been running a '79 zx dizzy in my 260 with no problems. I even went to the GM HEI ignition module ($16) 'cause the nissan module is so expensive ($200). However, you can get a rebuilt '79 dizzy with ignition module for $150 at any part store. You will need the '79 mounting/adj bracket and a 12v coil (MSD blaster 2). I also went with zx plugs, made for wider gap. Hope this helps.
