Converting small chevy distributor to HEI

Hello from a newbie,
Looking for any info or experience with converting the small (points) distributor to HEI. This is for a 76' SBC 400 (originally HEI and otherwise stock aside from manifold and headers). I need to use the small body for clearance and would prefer to convert one of my cores instead of a new distributor. There are a lot of alternatives as far as conversion kits. Any suggestions? I'm wondering about trying to get the same voltage from a remote coil and if plugs and/or plug gap needs to be changed. If memory serves correct the stock HEI was around 50,000v. Thanks
