Hey all,

Im just about to throw some cash into my car, just top end stuff at the moment, i have everything all sorted (parts wise) except a HEI distributor, im getting a MSD blaster ss HEI ignition coil as i have heard alot of good things about them but i have no idea what type of dizzy i should be getting or where to find it.

Any suggestions or help would be awesome.

Unlike the blue or black carbed 308's, the EFI 5L distributor doesn't have a built in ignition module. Really has nothing in it apart from a hall effect sensor (distributor reference sensor)
So there isn't any benefit in going aftermarket. Just fit the factory distributor
