    Renault 12 parts/mods

    Hi, I'm slowly tarting up my Renault 12, but keeping the engine a 1289cc. So far I've uprated all the suspension, and the handling has improved out of site. The engine was reconditioned 6 months ago, I also have an air filter on the standard weber carby.
    My distributor needs replacing, does anyone know of any replacements, either electronic or mechanical, and any opinions on which I should choose?
    I'm also chasing a set of extractors, I plan to do the whole exhaust soon (the existing one doesn't have much time left).
    On the horizon is also a cam, if anyone has suggestions on draining a little more power out of the car I would love to hear.
    Mark.

    drpeps? Mark? Perth, WA? Is your dad's name John?

    If so, I'm the bloke that came out and got an R12 wagon rear door from your dad.

    If not, I've just made a fool out of myself...
