I did everything on my turbo car to the point type ignition, hotter coil,  
lower resistance ballast, different capacitor, alkyd cap and rotor, and it still 
 misfired sometimes at full boost, and as soon as the center electrode 
rounded  over even a little bit, the misfire at full boost ALWAYS happened. 
Until I did my HEI upgrade. End of problem. Totally.

Makes me  wonder just how "inferior" a properly functioning 
points-ignition actually  was, compared to the electronic 
variant...  and yes, being an  electronics tech I fully understand the 
advantages of PEI.    I  just don't regard the points ignition as all 
that functionally inferior in  most instances as long as it's working 
the way it was intended to  work.
