Re: HEI, TFI, I\'m lost
My personal vote? Don't bother with HEI unless you've got a Chevy engine. Go with the duraspark distributor with the bigger Ford cap, some really good wires (very important), a TFI coil, and your favorite brand of plugs. A note about the plugs... stay away from all the multi-prong snake oil crap. The spark is only going to jump to one prong. I run Champion truck plugs and am very happy.
If you really want it to breath a bit more fire, put an MSD 6A ignition box on it. WELL worth the money, and I can't sing enough praises about the product or the company.
You can do a search on my username and find all kinds of stuff about fiddling with the ignition.
