Is there anyway to have an rpm limiter with an HEI distibutor?
Yes you can. MSD part #83645. $74.88 at Summit.
Stock modules used to run out of oomph at about 4.5k-5k That not true anymore? If it still is true, there's your cheep option.
They won't stop you from revving it higher.
They might start having problems that high up, but at no load (usually why you want a rev limiter) you can easily exceed the supposed 4500RPM "limit".
Summit sells a variable control rev limiter... good for unlimited applications depending on the chip you put in... Summit part number ATM-5301 for AutoMeter, MSD-8670 for the MSD version...
I have the MSD billet HEI, if that helps.
The previous owner of my truck swapped in a HEI and didn't do anything about the resistance wire. Stupid thing was only getting like 8V. The motor wouldn't rev at all...it was so bad that if you left it to the floor it would never shift out of 1st gear.
I say the easiest way is to toss in a ballist resistor
