Question is, does it make sense to
"upgrade" a 1973 ignition to the
popular new electronic coil &
"computer" boxes on the aftermarket?

Are the claims for 10X hotter spark
and stuff true?

just solved the problem with a poor running 450sel this engine had not run up to par for over a year, replaced a couple of clogged injectors, new plugs,cap,rotor,wires and coil. The engine got to the point where it would not start. To make a long story short I bypassed the condenser, the engine immediately fired and runs like a dynamo unbelievable. I hope this helps others with similar performance problems.
