Can anyone suggest a good HEI Dist. for the money that can handle the wear and tear of racing?

I just bought a D.avis U.nified I.gnition made by Preformance Distributors. Before I bolt this in can anyone give me any input on these. I spoke with a race shop that I deal with on a regular basis and they tell me that it is one of the better ones on the market.

If anyone knows any different please let me know. I relize that I am putting the cart before the horse but I will be cutting it close to putting everything back together by this Thurs.

Can't recomend another dist. but I can tell you we've been running a D.U.I. now for the past 2 years and have had no problems with it.

DUI is fine, just run the plugs at .035, those big gaps they talk about dont work in the real world.

Gene is right about the gap...don't let them fool you. I ran a DUI for 2 years until I switched to an MSD...bad move. After losing THREE boxes, I switched back to an HEI. You may not believe this, but the best my moter ever felt was with a bone stock HEI from Napa!!! We were out of town and failure number THREE made me switch to this $ 99.00 exchange HEI off the shelf. I still run it in my car and have had no problems. Davis makes a great distributer and you can not go wrong. If you ever want to save $ 200.00, try Napa.

Thanks for the info. Even though I am having a little buyers remorse on spending the extra $ on the DUI. I will get over it as soon as the car hits the track.

I too run a D. U. I. I just installed it three weeks ago and am pleased with the results. However, my MSD box did have a rev-limiter, and I think I miss it. For a chunk of change, DUI offers a rev-limiter for its setup but I passed. Also, I found my battery does last a little longer with the .035 plug gaps, as recommended above.
