Default Help with High Performance Distributor Caps

I was on ebay and alot of other websites looking for a (MSD OR ACCEL) High Peformance Distributor Cap for my 92 honda accord Ex, most of them when it came to "applications" or "fittings" it said 90-91 Honda Accord Ex Models, I was wondering , shouldnt they fit my 92, since 90-93 honda accord ex models are basically the same? Has anyone seen a 92 H.A.-Ex High Performance Distributor Cap?

was the ex that year a v-tech (i am not sure when they started using v-tech in models). if yes, it could be a little different. I'd suggest actually contacting a honda specialist on that. Or go to the dealer and find out if for your year and model the distributer cap is different then the rest.

Im pissed as hell right now i ordered a high performance distributor cap from sfxperformance.net for my 92 honda accord Ex and they said it will fit and everything and I received it today and tried to install it but the stupid moroso distributor cap only has terminals for the four spark plug wires and no other terminal for my main power wire that also connects to the cap, without it the car doesnt start...
My stock distributor cap has five terminals or hole things for my five wires...
Now i have to return this stupid thingg.......[:@][>:]

Well Im waiting for the return label from sfxperformance.net so it can be returned, this afternoon i went down to talk to a buddy of mine at kragen auto parts I told him my problem, he suggested me ordering the Borg Warner Distributor Cap(stock) for my car, he said it will give me very good performance like the moroso because it has brass contacts, he said the only difference between the borg warner dist. cap and the moroso, is that the moroso has that "cool" look, but either ways they are the same on performance because of those brass contacts.... so i went ahead and ordered it, it should arrive on tuesday, so shall my new rims
oh yeah and this one actually has the five terminals.
