Here we go......... CDI vs. Inductive. Plenty of track cars running Inductive (single or twin) with no issues. Long duration spark (inductive) vs. short duration spark (CDI). The debate will go on forever.

Those with distributor style ignitions should have the distributors rebuilt and recurved to match your engine's needs. There are still a few tuners out there that have the Sun-Machines style distributor machines that can fine tune your distributor. These engines are getting long on the tooth with advance/retard actuators/platform getting gummed up, advance springs aging, etc. You may be leaving some performance on the table or worse, potential damage.
