At almost 90k miles I'm Opti shopping. This guy seems to be turning out the best I've found. Regarding the bearing, he states "I replace the bearing. I have a jig that presses in the new bearing while retaining the timing."

Has anyone installed his product yet?

And, BTW, Rock has a few of these Belden/Napa 700785 wire sets left with high-temp gray line conduit:

It ain't cheap but he's hitting all the high points. I'd make sure to put a new 4-pin harness on it too while you're at it and you've covered all the failure points. The bearing, Mitsubishi sensor and new seal are all big deals.

As I said when I bought a really expensive ladder, it's cheaper than the cost of ONE ER visit.  That opti is cheaper than the cost of a tow and the downtime to replace an opti.

I bought one from Brad and everything appeared to be as advertised. He was easy to deal with, did what he said, and stood behind his product. He offered a few options regarding which components I wanted it assembled from. Mine had the MSD cap and rotor, Mitsubishi sensor, new harness and new vent.

Unfortunately, the unit arrived the day before the car was totaled, so I never got the chance to install it.

I think mine came factory with the ultimate opti. 195k on the original unit, cap, rotor, all the way down to factory packard electronics wires and delco plugs. The optical sensor literally burned a hole through the plastic lol. Replaced the the wear components with an SMP (BWD parts store brand) cap and rotor and some fresh wires and denso plugs. Even with that many miles (currently at 205k) the original opti is still going strong. They are long lasting units and do not need to be replaced if you can seal them and keep them maintained. At 90k, an aftermarket cap and rotor like the SMP or MSD will allow you to get alot of miles with stock optical sensor and disk. Call me crazy but I still have the original water pump! Laughing

I've done plugs and wires on my '96, but my Opti has never been touched in 137K miles. I DID have the water pump leak way back in 2007 at about 80K miles though!

Sorry I missed this. I have an opti from Brad. He actually sent me two because he couldn't verify in his notes if he tested the original that he sent, so he exchanged it. Good to deal with. The units are tested at temp and completely sealed. Came with a fresh harness and vent.

Only 8k miles on it, but they've been trouble free so far.
