Agreed, I love it. Has no troubles with the high compression. I got a hold of her on the phone today and she's getting an RA from the manufacturer for me. Awesome gal, really goes the extra mile for us.

Yep that is her.


I have one and am happy with it,
but be aware that they are now selling stock starters and calling them High Output.

Right on the box it shows the H.O. are longer. I asked how long these H.O. starters are and the answer was that they are the same length as stock.

(Nice gig, figure who is measuring torque or current draw of the starter they receive to call them on it..? )

Mine was longer. So was the starter.
