Default integra with new crappy dizzy?

i installed a new distributor on my 92 gs-r because the old one would die with 20 miles of driving i installed a aftermarket distributor i started it and fired up perfectly it even idled better....but once i reved it it would not go past 3000 rpms i checked the timing and position i double checked everything!!! it acted like it had a rev i put my old dizzy on and it revved perfectly but i dont want to drive it because i will get stranded with the old dizzy...... what could be the problem with my car or my brand new dizzy???

yeap its a bad new dizzy. go and exchange it. complain and complain and complain. a new one shouldn't even do that at all. explain to them that you putted it in and it did that then you putted the old one and it was fine.

buy a brand new one. don't buy re-manufactured distributors with lifetime warranties. you'll be returning, replacing, and re-installing them for a lifetime. you might just need a new ignition coil in your old distributor. they die out from heating up often. mine was doing that and it led me to installing an external coil. you'll need a MSD super coil and the MSD distributor cap.
