HEI ignition system for the 350

Whats everyone running for ignition systems and why or why do you not like it? My application is for a stoutly built 350. I am considering an MSD6A box, mallory HEI distributor and externally mounted coil as i like the cleaner look of the manifold and carb with the round coil and bracket gone and no big boxes hanging off the distributor. The Mallory seems expensive. Are they worth it. Am I going to get anything besides a shiny bottom other than some of the lower profile manufacturers. Who else makes a good distributor? What would scare you the most about buying used distributors off of Ebay. Some seem to LOOK like new and are considerably cheaper.

Re: HEI ignition system for the 350

I'm running a stock 1970something GM HEI with the MSD6al box. I like it due to parts are at about any parts store for the HEI. KISS (keep it simple stupid) is the motto I like.
