I like the HEI modular design and single wire connection.
    Guess l been out of hot rodding to long. Good info Steve.

    I agree with Steve on the HEI. BUTif you want fancy. My Mallory unlite is still running. 26 years.from racing to daily in a friends car.
    D.U.I. HEI have a good rating too.

    Do you have room for a HEI distributor? It would be my first choice on your engine. Keep an extra ignition module, etc. on the boat, just in case. The "ready to run" distributors are nice, but if it fails, the parts may be hard to find.

    Steve, thats a Ford distributor. I'll probably end up spending the money and getting one of those. Mallory makes good stuff. Could have bought a complete stroker from Summit , ready to run, for less than I'm spending and with no grief.

    Actually at the end of April I got another email. Tentative ship date, May 26. I canceled Jegs and got one in 3 days from Summit with my Performer intake . Just got the cam spider last week.

    Finally have all the parts. Engine shop closed down. Retirement and sold the building. So now I have a boat with no engine and a shop full of parts. And don't forget the wife who wants to know where the 26 is.
    Question, what ignition , distributor et all do you stroker guys use. I have a new Mallory box that I might as well use.

    Don't know which intake. Two brothers in the shop. I was told to order this stuff by the one that does the heads. He said his brother was researching intakes and FI systems and he would probably order them and let me know. I don't know how to build what I want so I let them tell me..

    Actually got my letter today saying I was getting the check, it was in Spanish.
    Good stuff!

    That combination will make 350-400hp at over 5000rpm. Which intake manifold?

    I guess uncle Joe and his cronies don’t like me, never saw a check. They always say send us more we can spend it more wisely. Time to retire cause Im getting tired of pulling the cart. Worst of all they really hate our grandkids saddling them with all that debt.

    sorry I dragged a good post into the swamp I’ll stay off my soapbox.
