not so fast...prior to changing to vortec, Chevy had a standard distributor with a cap that had the plug wire hook-ups pointing straight up. With the newer vortec engine, the plug wires come out the sides of the cap. The real difference is that the newer distributors require a crank sensor and have a different wiring plug.
