Hello Scott, Yes I remember you a year ago I was loocking by my elctronics with the help of this forum I decided bought a complete MSD package: wires, small diameter distribuitor, propower coil and 7 al 3 ignition box.
In regard to the ET´s and HP´s in México the tracks are very bad and higher i live at 2000 msnm I dont know how many pies is that but I am going to feel me very satisfaced if my car runs 10´s and is around 700 hps. Maybe with a 300 shot of NOS I can get a 9.9 ET.
THANKS

I have a friend with a 71 Mach 1 tube chassis street car, and with a single dominator and older aluminum SCJ heads his car runs 9.90's on motor. The cam is much milder, and he runs a C4. I would expect your car to be at least a mid nine car... I don't know what his car weights, but you should have him covered on power by quite a bit. We are close to sea level though...
