what is the best control module to use in my gm style one piece billet distributor with a 50000 volt coil pack on my 67 400ci. i have been using the accel module and i still have to replace it about every other year. (maybe thats kinda normal? ) any feed back would be awesome.

Hey fellow Cheese Head. Why do you need to replace it every two years? Does it quit on you?

yeah it just shuts down without any warning, I do have a ground strap on it, and it goes to the fire wall. could be a poor gound there.

I'd check the voltage and make sure a strong 14 with the engine running (12 would be fine but i think you should be seeing "system" voltage with everything running.). Then i'd maybe move that ground strap from the dist to the firewall, to the dist to the dist mounting bolt, so you're grounding to the block. Then i'd switch to some delco GM module and see how long it lasts. If it goes longer than your other, maybe throw the accel back on and see if that did it. If the accel dies, maybe the accel is just not quality?
