I was Thinking of replacing my stock looking (for 1977 or thereabouts) HEI distributor with a Pertronics Distributor assembly. Although I am sure this would out perform my current Ignition system I am not sure that Pretronics is the best way to go? Any thoughts on this? Should I maybe stick with a MSD or some other type of replacement distributor? Or just keep my original distributor and upgrade everything in and around it? I have looked at this option but the cost of doing this is almost the same(if not more) than just buying the whole assembly.

I recommend getting the ProForm HEI , 50,000 volt coil, go to ebay and search for hotrodsusa under username search and look at what he has to offer. I got mine for just $74.99

I installed a Petronix Igniter system on my 69. I can't honestly say the car performs better but, I like the fact that I don't have to replace points on a GM distributor. I highly recommend the system.

Mel from www.melsignition.com got me to try one. I love it. He builds distributors for many local circle track racers here in NC and the east coast. It withstands heat very well and like the previous post...no more points.

Goto the website and give Mel a call. Super nice guy. He can help with any questions you might have.
