HEI Dizzy

What is the best coil to run with a Bosch HEI Distributor on a 3.3 blue six? Is there any gains to be had by buying something fancy or expensive?
Cheers, Mick.

The best coil for a Bosch HEI system is the genuine Bosch HEC716 transformer style coil.

Where does 1 find an original thats not rooted now days? Maybe 1 was a dud that I changed Should add the ones I know of still going the cars don't get driven much. If you want it just right and have the money get one from scorcher $$$.

The mouth moving industry is doing well as usual whats actually happened?

The cheap copy HEI distributors you can get on ebay for less than $50 tend to have modules that only last 6 months and fairly horrible advance curves in my experience.

are you using the mec coil with the mec module thats in most of them?
Some times Ive put a BIM024 modual in , on others I just used the mec coil depending on how much the car was liked all the TA's I now think the car is worth a million dollars but wont spend any money on it.

Fitted a Bosch HEC716 and a very noticeable difference from instant starting to improved performance.
Thanks for the guidance.
Would the HEC 716 coil offer any improvement on a Starfire Four with a stock dizzy?

Cheers, Mick.

The HEC716 draws too much current for stock points style distributor. The points will burn out fairly quickly with or without a ballast resistor.

Dr Terry if the points were replaced with an Accu-Spark unit would it handle the stronger current/spark?

Cheers, Mick.
