    Default Anyone using Pertronix Rev limiter

    Looking for feedback from people who have used Pertronix. I need an affordable rev limiter for an HEI. It will never turn over 5500 RPM. I am not interested in changing the distributor. This is a budget project. I'd like to limit it to 4800 for the time being but may up that to 5500 later. I am debating between the MSD soft touch and the Pertronix 600. I like the adjustability of the Pertronix without having to buy pills and it is less expensive over all. I'd really like to find a used one.

    Will either one work with HEI? How do they wire in to an HEI?

    They both say they work with an HEI. Jeg's has install instructions for the MSD box on the page I linked in my first post.

    http://www.msdignition.com/Products/...v_Control.aspx
    "The Soft Touch Rev Control, PN 8728, is designed to be used on standard points ignition or inductive ignition systems. This means that the PN 8728 can be installed on engines with a GM HEI Ignition"

    "Flame-Thrower digital rev limiters work with any 4, 6 or 8 cylinder engine using points, OEM electronic (GM HEI, Ford, Chrysler)"
