[V8] Distributor rotor replacing

Honestly, IME the ignition system on a V8 has never been the cause of
anything significant. It feels really good to replace ignition parts on
most cars until you spend 40, 120, 160, 360 bux doing so and don't notice
any real improvement. The really significant issues on these are breather
hoses, vacuum lines, fuel pressure regulators, ecu and flywheel sensors, and
maybe air filters. They're surprisingly solid compared to the 91 and
earlier turbo cars.
