    I'm just curious,
    Why HEI? The Duraspark (EEC 3) distributor wayyy outperformed the HEI in a test Hotrod Mag did in the early to mid '90s. The Duraspark even outperformed Mallory, Accel, and MSD in that test.
    If it's for the one wire install, and no external module, then I guess I understand.

    It was in the car already when I purchased it! So I left it in there , will probably change it out when ever I change out the engine but until then I'll leave it there!

    Good plan. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! If you are changing spark plugs on that ignition system, Buy the plugs that fit the heads, and gap 'em at .o45.
