Flame-Thrower HEI distributors


Experts agree that good HEI ignition systems rely on a good module and a good coil. We believe that the combination of a great module and a great coil makes our Flame-Thrower distributor the best.

We've engineered our module and coil to work together, to provide you with superior ignition performance on the street or track. Compare the Flame-Thrower High Performance Module and Coil to an original GM HEI distributor and you will find dramatic improvements, because they've been designed to work as a team to get these results.
