Help with twin plug

I'm the proud new owner of a 1977 911. The 2.7 liter has been taken out and in its place it now how has a a 3.0 that has been rebuilt to 3.2 twin plug with higher compression and pistons.

It has an electromotive twin plug set up in it now, I was possibly wanting to take it back a distributor twin plug. What distributor do I need to be looking for to do this?

The car is going to be a driver, and I'm going to turn it into a 1974 carrera tribute which is going require that I put a decal on the sides and steel flags on it, the car already has a duck tail and has been lowered in the back. It is going to be a gently done street rod.

I'm stocked about this since it is 77 which is kind of already a transition year.

If you have some steel flag mirrors let me know. Thanks

Check with The two excellent sources. They offer the same high quality and function. Just slightly different styling.

Just curious why would you go back to a distributor. Is is for originality. I have the electromotive system in my car and works great and gives you a lot more flexibility with adjustment.

Patrick Motorsports does a single cap twin plug distributor. It uses the black Marelli cap. It is a VR distributor, so you could use a Bosch 6-pin. That and some braided Beru wires should give you the RSR look.

I was going to do it more for originality. But I'm new to the twin plug world.

So J Brown you have electromotive is a pretty good system to stay with?

I'm fine with just doing my little exterior 74 carrera touches and leaving it at that.
