Pertronix Flame-Thrower

Pertronix Flame-Thrower Race-Only HEI Distributor

HEI Performance Up To 8500 RPM!
Pertronix has developed an HEI Distributor, Module and Coil for ''race only'' applications that turn big rpm! Everything in this piece is brand new (NOT remanufactured) from the cap to the gear. Compared to the street/strip version, the race-only unit produces 42% more energy in the coil with 46% faster spark breakdown time allowing 48% more peak current to reach the spark plug. This abundant energy doubles the spark intensity during the critical one millisecond of burn time. A specially designed vacuum lockout mechanism prevents timing adjustments that change rotor phasing, adversely affecting the burn time and efficient fuel combustion. Rotor plates are TIG welded to the mechanical advance mechanism preventing high RPM distortion improving mechanical reliabilty. Each distributor uses a new aluminum housing cast and machined from a strong but lightweight A384 alloy and are supplied with a high dielectricstrength cap with solid brass terminals, a balanced rotor and low resistance center coil brush, nylon rotor hold-down screws and a factory installed high performance mechanical curve kit with precision machined weights and center plate. A hardened machined steel gear is standard.


Sorry about the advertisement but I wanted you to know exactly what I was talking about.

Anyone dealt with this company or particular product??

I am really considering purchasing one, but do not want to be disappointed!

Our 85 ElCamino runs a complete Pertronix Distributor.Nice looking piece and has perfomed flawlessly for two years.The ElCamino sees low miles per year though.But it will still fire at any time we need it to.

Thanks for the reply, You say it has performed flawless for two years, sounds reliable. But does it fell like a crisp throttle response or more power in the top end. I guess I should also ask you what work is done to the motor and if you can really feel better performance from this?

thanks

It is on a Goodwrench 350 replacement crate motor. We are going to pull the engine soon and go through it,but as it sits it is a low HP motor. You could tell a difference in the Flamethrower over stock on that particular car. I have tried the "other" HEI coil,that junky Accell coil and I realized I had just wasted my money before. But the Pertronix unit did wake up the 350. We never flogged the EC,it was more of a cruising type ride,every now and then it gets stood on,but not often,abd it has not cut out or missed at higher RPM's.
