HEI is definatly an upgrade over a points/condenser setup but I would think the spark energy is not as much as a CD/MSD box. Hard to beat the MSD stuff.

I adapted and ran a GM HEI distributor on a couple motors. The spark is more than with a perlux or compufire with a blue coil, but I think the multiple spark from a MSD can't be beat.

I have one out in the garage if anyone needs it. I intended to use it before they came out with MSD distributors and then never needed it. Mike McCarthy

We've put them in a few Ford engines at work and they work very well, no problems with them at all. They are a HUGE distributor cap though. I put an HEI dist in my 69 Chevy truck with a straight 6 250ci. Best thing I ever did to that truck.
