What do I need to convert my stock HEI to run an external coil? I'm thinking of putting on a capacitive discharge ignition on.

a different cap , a spark plug set w/ a extra coil wire, a coil bracket.... depending on what shape coil round or squareish, cut the +/- wires and put the right ends on

just put new one on my car last week.... this is for a 6 not sure what you have.....

standard brand cap #DR446 (large style cap, male plug wire ends)

rotor #DR319

parts house is being a pain about the wires, only have a 6 wire set, not 7 wire, they say it doesn't exist, even though I've bought my last two sets there... have to dig up my old recipit for that....
