I would get a 6-A. You don't need the rev limiter in the 6-AL, so why spend the $$.

They are easy to install, and very straight forward, the instructions included with them are good. It will give you a much cleaner burn due to the multiple spark discharge, it raises RPM potential over HEI's and will likely improve idle characteristics as well. You will also need MSD wires, because a 6 series MSD will cook solid core wires. On your 95- I'm not sure how much gain you'll see, but on my 400 SB I see a huge difference over the HEI, revs much faster, runs smoother. Opens the door for other performance mods.

z28lt1350, does a 95 have even have a distributor? I am not sure what year the cut is for 4th gen. If it doesn't, you will have to get one of the MSD DIS boxes. If your car does have a distributor, than go ahead and get the 6AL, if you can. If you ever pop a u-joint or drop a shaft, (or even wheel spin) you will be thankful for the extra $$$ spend on a rev limiter.

The 6A or 6AL (w/rev limiter) will both work but you'll need a harness adapter for your coil (part #8877 I think, check with whomever you buy it from). Your Accel wires will work fine as long as they are not solid core and fit your LT1. Gheatly is correct in that you don't need a rev limiter on this car as it has a fuel shut-off just past 6000 rpm (factory rev limiter).
