    I have done it. you can do it. But you have to get the timing right and the bolts don't even match up . you have to hold the dizzy on and have someone start the car. I did it on my b7 mini-me to get it to start before i got my z6 dizzy.

    yep you can do it. the previouse owner of my rex BROKE parts of the bracket,and then put a big washer on the top bolt to hold it on. How rice is that? anyway it will work.

    I had my stock crx dist. on my vtec head and ran it that way for a year
    you can also swap out the guts of the non vtec dist and put them into the vtec dist, so that way the bolts line up

    yup it can def be done but you have to hack off one of the dizzy holes and nigrig it with a washer. a freind of mine did it with a cx dizzy on a z6 bout 2 months ago and he hasnt had a prob with it yet
