So I did a tuneup on the 96 200SX. The bottom bolt broke off from the old cap, leaving a nice chunk of bolt lodged in the hole. This could be due to an unknown tune-up history. I don't believe the distributor cap was ever changed by the original owner (166,000 miles on original cap!)

Anywho, I changed the cap anyway, and its held in with 2 screws. Could I notice any problems with the cap installed that way? What would I notice that would point to the cap installed with only 2 screws?

you should be fine, but i'd concider using a, i think it's called a countersink. its basicly a tool that is threaded oppisite the screw, and it drills in to the screw to pull it out.

I've heard of them called ez-outs. They should help you get it out. You will probably ok with 2 bolts but I would try to get all 3 just in case.
