Distributor differences on Cobra ?

Is there a difference between a Cobra distributor and a normal 5.0 unit. Local Ford dealer wants 356.00 for a new one. (My distributor bearings are sqeaking so it is time to replace it.) I was told by a repair place that the only difference between the Cobra and a 5.0 unit was the advance mechanism, which is easily swapped out, thus saviing me about $200.00.
Has anyone had any experiences with this problem?

I am not sure that there are any differences? When i bought a distributor recently from summit, they only specified for the 94/95 5.0L, not cobra/GT. Anywho, I decided against swapping out for the MSD, as my distributor is still fine. Would you like to buy the MSD unit from me? I paid 270 for it I think, I need to check my receipt at home. Its the drop in Billet piece, looks really nice. I can have it shipped or bring it to the 5th in TN. Where are you located?

You would think there would be a differece... but I've never seen any info stating the difference.
Did the dealer have 2 different PNs for them?
