Watch this space on how it goes...

Buffalo, you brought up a resistor wire, and a GM style plug. Would you care to expand on that? I'm not sure what you are taking about/how it is involved in the HEI installation.

the resistor wire goes from the ignition switch to the coil in a points ignition. It only allows 9 volts so the points will survive. With an HEI you want a full 12 volts. Some people recommend a 10 gauge wire.
As far as a GM style plug I am guessing he means for the same wire we are speaking of and a tach lead. They are readily available from Summit, NAPA etc...
