Original GM HEI Distributors For Street or Strip Performance

Bring Your 502 GM Crate Motor or Any GM Performance

Crate Engine to Life!

We load tested a stock as supplied GM HEI distributor from a 502/502 Crate Motor

The results are shown in the table below, the aftermath was a time slip at 12 MPH Faster and an ET  .4 quicker! Shift point at 5500

The Blue Line indicates output to 8,000 RPM with Pertronix Ignitor 3

The engineering wizards at GM designed and built your GM HEI distributor to run for 250,000 miles and they Do It Easily.  You can find all sorts of supposedly New and Improved offshore replacements from China, Australia, Taiwan, India and other places around the world but from our testing NONE of them compare to your Genuine GM Part in quality, craftsmanship, fit and finish, performance and longevity. 

The Pertronix HEI with either the Race Only or Street Strip Modules work very well whether installed in your Original GM distributor or the Pertronix HEI unit.

In either variety the detent that holds total timing will slip and allow the advance to jump ahead at about 62-6400 RPM, when this happens it could be catastrophic or at least make the car very inconsistent...... We Fix That!

Always inspect your "Crate Motors Distributor" most are being delivered with a imitation Chinese HEI import distributors, throw it as far away as you can from your new motor. We Fix That!

None are curved for optimum performance and None has a good enough module to run your motor to it's optimal performance level. We Fix that!

The stock GM Modules and coils are not up to the task of firing your 500-600+ HP Hot Rod to 7-9,000 RPM or adjustable to get the timing events correct for your Performance camshaft and higher compression ratios.  That's where we come in, changing the module, coil and setting up the timing events and vacuum controls to meet the demands of your modified GM Motor to insure top performance and most of all the longevity of your investment. Today's fuels are not formulated to run in a 40 year old engine design, timing events are one of the biggest improvements you can make to your old school Hot Rod.

Note: We will not accept a import HEI distributor as a core they have zero value.
