Re: [DML] Re: Stock Ignition vs HEI Ignition

Bill, please could you take the time to answer the following two questions.

- Did you ever try running your wider gapped plugs with the stock coil?

- Did the engine ever run badly with a healthy OEM ignition system and 
seen to be *fixed* with HEI?

I'm not trying to pick a fight, I appreciate you kept your post to the 
facts, and if the answer to either of the above is a "yes", I'll shut 
up. I'm sure owners out there may well be interested in upgrading.

Personally "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Ignition isn't like 
suspension or electrics - if it's working to begin with, there's not a 
lot you can do to make it work "better". My own experience of 
"performance ignition" was a turbo engine that just wouldn't take boost 
till I switched back to an original Bosch coil. Maybe I was doing 
something wrong.
