    Quick question for you guys. I am running a stock 1973 L-82 motor in my Z28. I have upgraded my distributor from the points to the Pertronix flamethrower setup and have been happy with it for the most part. I am running Delco R44T plugs in the motor. Should I be running different plugs (since these are what the book calls for with the points)? What are you guys running with this setup?

    Thanks

    If it runs fine, and they're not fouling they must be ok.
    I have a Pertonix conversion for 6-7 years now. Seems to hold up well, never had a problem with it, and it gets along with my Mallory 685 box nicely.

    As long as the plug gap is set correctly I think AC plugs are the best bang for the buck plug out there. For a N/A engine anyway.
