    iirc the ultimate hei kit does not give u multiple spark like the 6a box would. so it would be an improvement. it would help power & gas mileage. i don't think it would be enough to notice though.

    I had the same setup as you practically, Edlebrock Cam, Intake, Carb and Hooker headers, MSD distributer. There was a very noticeable increase in the low end take off and pulling uphill. I swapped it over to the '75 and it improved the idle and low end power on the stock motor! A lot smoother idle also. I highly recommend it on carborated engines!!! :waytogo: MDS Multi-spark ignition that is!
