Default Do you need an OptiSpark?

Restore spark to your LT1/LT4 motor with this BRAND NEW Distributor from AIP Electronics
This Distributor EXCEEDS OEM specification and comes 100% complete with everything needed including a new Optispark wiring harness.
(Note: Harness may not fit all applications and you may have to use your original harness.) Our AIP LT1 Optical Encoder is temp rated at 330
and produces an accurate timing reference signal up to 8000 RPM, exceeding the OEM Mitsubishi encoder used in the AC Delco factory LT1 distributors.
This is most likely the best aftermarket LT1/LT4 distributor you will ever come across. Uses AIP's own Mitsubishi Specification Optical Encoder
for the most accurate/dependable LT1 Distributor yet.
We have negotiated with AIP and starting 12/01/2015 AIP Optisparks purchased through SacCityCorvette come with a 2 Year Replacement Warranty!
Must be purchased through SacCityCorvette to receive this 2 yr warranty!

Vented $159.95
Non Vented $169.95

This will probably be the first thing I buy from you if I end up picking up a C4 this weekend. Even though the one that is in it still works, it will be a matter of time before it goes out on me. Always nice to have a spare. These seem to be the best!

Which one would I need for a 94 C4?? You have 2 listed. Vented and non.

Hi EVLGTO,
A 94 will probably have a non vented but you really need to check because some of the late 94's had vented. We can send which ever you need right out when your ready.

Thanks
Christian

You can't bolt a vented on without making some changes to the engine but there is a mod. Google changing a gen 1 opti to a gen 2.

I am so glad I saw your add. I have been looking at opti's all day after finding that mine is more than likely going bad. I was very discouraged with all the differences in prices from $500+ to $85. I usually I'm very frightened by low prices but with the 2 year warranty that relieves some worry. I have a 93 40th by the way. Hope this works!! Thanks.

AIP says the Opti is made offshore but the sensor is made in the US to Mitsubishi specs.

Thank you,

Christian, This is the email you sent me------"We import them from Taiwan. But production quality from them is same a Mitsubishi in Japan."

I have 200 miles on it-so far all is good!! I have added a vented MSD Cap/Rotor.

Regards,
Steve

Thanks Steven for clearing that up. I remembered the sensor was good quantity. For some reason I thought he said it was US made.

Just got my opti. It is not like the cap pictured above. Mine is all black. Also, it came out wet. I can post a pic if you want.
