parts store they run about 90$,
junkyard about 25$

youll have to dent the firewall to get a factory hei in, alot of people buy kits that get rid of points but keep the distributor.

,i was thinking of getting a pt job at a napa just so i could get the discount

I thought that a 70 would not need any firewall mods because by 74 or 75 they all had hei?I cant't find any at my junk yards here in savannah because everybody gets them before I can get there

I installed a Pertronix electronic ignition
in my 69 Z28. As Will stated, it removes the points and eveything is under the cap. Took about 60 minutes to install and cost about $70. Revs to 6500+ rpm no problem and has required no maintenence.

Yes, I am using the stock coil, dist cap and stock type plug wires. However, an aftermarket coil, wires, etc. might give the system even more efficiency.
