Yep... I have tried to use them on two different occasions. I wanted to clean up the wiring/look under the hood. The first one worked(?) for about a week before it started cross firing and the engine would hardly run. The second (replacement) cap was worse than the first. I put a regular HEI cap back on and it ran fine instantly.

When I was running a GM HEI I used a cross fire cap and had no problems at all.

i guess fletch had a true "crossfire" cap...to be honest, i don't see a need for one. properly routed, the wires on a regular HEI aren't too ugly.
