heres my experience, FWIW. i put the first design pertronix in my camaro after i got it, wanted a cheap stealth install. it worked much better than the points (what a surprise), but after about a month it just ceased to function. went out to start the car, nada. took it back, and they gave me another, it was slightly different. (must be 2nd design) put it on, and it never ran worth a crap. at that point i just picked up a junkyard HEI, freshened it up, and it ran best of any of them. i have since gone to a 6al and a pro billet, and won't be going back again. still have the hei as a backup though.
