im in the market for a new H.E.I. distributor to go on my small block chev. its a warmed up 283 (intake, 4-barrel, mild cam, headers, etc.) and i was wondering what you guys recommend. i currently have a hypertech cap and rotor assembly along with some nice aurora wiresthat i can put on the new dis. so iw as thinking of buying a stock one and adding these parts. i shift this motor at around 6500 rpm occasionaly and want something that can keep up. will the stock one get the job done? this isnt a race motor or anything but performance is important to me and i do want a quality product but price is also an issue. what do you guys recommend for the best one for the price?

MSD has a good line of distributors. I like them but everyone has a preference.

I would reccomend getting one with vaccum advance.

I asked this same question a month or so ago, I am also getting a new distributor for my mild 283. Based on the answers I got I've decided on a MSD 8360. It has a vacuum advance and is fully adjustable (vacuum and mechanical)...

Just call up MSD, tell them what your looking for and one of their techs will supply you with the correct part number.

Mallery (sp?) has a brand new, fully adjustable, high output billet HEI distributor for 150 bucks. Ding we have a winner.

i've used MSD products before, and quite honestly I was never that impressed-

I was happy with my MSD distributor however I am sure Killer has had a lot more experience with various companies and their products than I have.

Either way I think you'll be happy but perhaps you should give Mallory a call as well.
