    Whats the best place to get a HEI for my truck. Its a 78 so there is no EST or anything. I can get a reman. one from the parts store for around $100, but I am kind of worried about one of them. I have heard bad things about their ignition modules. I want one complete with ignition module, vac. advance, etc. Mines got too many freaking problems. You know its time to get a new one when you have JB weld and electrical tape in your dist. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Thanks for your advice.

    $149.99 for the summit HEI(p/n SUM-850001R), not bad for a whole new dist. Or if you want one with all the bells and whistles you can get a pertronix one for $219.95(p/n PNX-D1000) from summit

    I got a MSD distributor from JEGS for a reasonable price. All new plus some upgrades over the stock design.
