If you have a well setup ignition system that works well, there is no gain to be had by any other ignition system. Lots of people used to complain because an MSD box did not give them any more HP. I would tell them when things get marginal, spark plugs fouling, points out of whack then the MSD box keeps firing your engine.
I also do not get this DUI distrubutor thing. HEI's are crap, always have been and always will be. A Duraspark is a better distributor, much stronger signal from pickup, better rotor to cap design and does not have a module stuck down in its too hot guts.
Well right now i have a stock coil and stock points Dist. The coil only sucks 2vots and i think is only 10,000 volt coil so every sucks right now i should get a noticeable gain. I am going to gap the spark plugs to .50
