New Distributor - Help!

Hi all,
a friend of mine and I recently built a 383 stroker for my '77 vette and I want to replace the original HEI distributor. I'm in a major quandary about what to go with though (ignition systems are definitely not my bag). I've been looking through my Jegs catalogue, and I can't decide whether or not to go with the Ready-to-Run Pro-Billet HEI (part# 8365) (which comes with the high energy module and coil) or the Pro-Billet Standard (part# 85551) which requires the ignition box and has no vacuum advance. They also have the Ready-to-Run Street Pro-Billet (part# 8361) which includes the vacuum advance, but requires the ignition box. Wouldn't I also need to buy a coil for this though? Then again they also have the 8360 Ready-to-Run Street Pro-Billet with vacuum advance and it states it will work with or without the ignition box. Any suggestions - PLEASE! Are there advantages to getting a distributor which requires the ignition box (I assume I'd have to buy a coil) over the HEI? I could really use you guys expertise and ideas on what to get.
Thanks in advance, Marc.
