I know this has been tossed around previously, but was wondering if their are any new experiences with this product. I was thinking of updating my points distributor with either a GM type HEI or the Ignitor II with a new Flame Thrower coil and 7mm stock look plug wires. I guess I'm looking to keep it more on the original look. Does the distributor have to be removed to install this product? Appreciate any info you may have to have to offer.

You don't have to take the distributor out, but you might have a slight problem getting the new wire and molded plug(on the wire) to seal in the thru hole in the distributor housing.....
Neat way to go....looks stock.....a bit of advice.......when you go to start the car....turn the key to the run position and wait about 5 seconds before starting the car as the module takes that long to energize itself.......took a while to figure that out......crank-crank....
Seems that's the only downside to this that I do that it starts immediately.......

I've used both the Ignitor system and the one that M&H Fabricators sell = I like the one from M&H better ,One wire and easy to setup. Check em out

Although the HEI may not look stock, it works well, even on an L78 motor. If it does break down, any automotive parts store will have what you need to get you back on the road. For that matter, I've never had problems with points. With the amount of mileage that we put on these old cars, you might have to change the points every 3-4 years. An all out race car might be another matter.
