Hoping to get input on the FBO and MSD Y-block offerings. I am planning to run 350hp on the street. I see the FBO fits and looks better.

FBO for sure. MSDs quality has been slipping. From what I've been hearing they are outsourcing to the Chinese.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is an FBO Dist/Ign. syst?  I don't recognize the initials. I am getting older, and may just be forgetting.  Thanks

FBO appears to be a stock distributor with a bit of machining plus a Pertronics unit. Not worth over $500 in my book. You can find a 57 up distributor, machine the base and install a Pertronics for a heck of a lot less. I don't know how much MSD is invested in China but I do know that the low priced MSD's you see on EBAY are imported knock offs. In my experience they have always done a fair job of standing behind their product. 

Y's guys rule!
Looking for McCullouch VS57 brackets and parts. Also looking for 28 Chrysler series 72 parts. And early Hemi parts.

The FBO is advertised to be a new distributor.  I'm thinking they modify a new Pertronix III small block distributor to fit.

Correct Charlie. He's a good guy. I've talked to him a couple times and He helped me out without a single expectation.He will also recurve the distributor to your specifications. The customer service alone offsets the price in my opinion.

On my blower motor I am using an MSD dizzy. It's an older version but I'm using it with an MSD box for boost control. The "Plug and play" aspect is really nice.I wonder if the new FBO dizzy's are compatible with an MSD ignition box? I'm thinking probably not.
