Unless you're boosted or heavily modified, use what the General gave you...stock ignition is plenty capable.

Is the 5.7 stock? Upgraded? My ZZ4 runs good with a stock HEI but curved for performance. You can change the timing curve with simple weight changes.

Factory ignition will be fine...spend your money elsewhere.
