Strictly Speaking, an Electronic Distributor does not have Breaker Points. It can be triggered Magnetically, by Light Source or Hall Effect Device. It uses an external or internal switching Unit of some sort.

An Electronic Distributor might be Low Energy (LEI), Medium Energy (MEI) or High Energy (HEI).

Usually people are referring to the difference between an OH Breaker Point Ignition ... http://holdenpaedia....

and Bosch HEI ... http://holdenpaedia....

What's it for ? If it's for 308 ( or any motor ) then the Bosch HEI is the best ! Very tunable and unless you run a massive turbo that can blow out the spark it's all you will ever need. Just make sure you run genuine Bosch parts in it and you will get 30 odd years of service, and get a good re-curve for it, cheers Glenn

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience..
