I`m posting this as I had read Icodys response to his MSD, now I`m not saying tis is but anymeans the best way, but have converted my son`s `68 Dart 370 c.i. to HEI we just mounted the module to the fire wall and wired it in, when I was reaserching for this found another link where they had done this to a flathead motor, very easily done for those that want say a old two piece accel or stock distributor converted to HEI, here are both links one for the dodge and the other for the flathead conversion. Just food for thought for the purists.....;)

I think the Pertronix conversions are the best of both worlds. I'm running them on my SBC and my BBC, and use the stock distributor with Pertronix kit inside. Only thing that gives it away is a red and black wire coming out of the distributor. I've had perfect results with both of them, and good performance too!

It's hard not to be tempted into putting an MSD ignition in a "period correct" car. There is no doubt they out perform ignition setups of days gone bye!!! There is hardly a performance car around here that does not run one.

Who knows, with the growing popularity of nostalgia "period correct look" hot rods that there will someone making something to give us the "performance" of today with the "look" of "back in the day".
