I'm not familiar with Mallory products other than what I've seen in the store. Any particular reason that you want to mix brands on your ignition? Most guys just use same brand box as distributor. On a street car you will probably want the vaccum advance and will need to recurve the mechanical to suit your vehicle. They will all 'run' out of the box, just be prepared to 'tune' them to get optimum performance. They come with instructions on how to tune.

I think he's saying that you should use an MSD box with an MSD distributor.

Don't worry about that. The HEI triggers the MSD just fine. Just bypass the module.

I'm not familiar with Mallory's distributors, but MSD has simple instructions for just about anything you'll want to hook it up to.
