Not sure about the 15 horsepower. Sounds like talk. However, swapping to HEI does eliminate the need to change out points. A lot of guys have done the upgrade to a HEI.

I didn't get 15hp when i did mine.John is right about getting rid of the points hassle and I also think my gas mileage increased a bit as well.

You can post up the ID# if you get one and with a $6.00 recurve kit and a different/or adjustable vacuum advance $12 to $26 bucks, you'd be good to go.
