Default Which Distributor for Ford 347 stroker engine

Hi

I am building a Small Block Ford 347 stroker engine for a Cobra Kit Car. I am building the engine with Roller Cam and Roller Rockers. Could you advise on the best model of MSD distributor to buy to fit this Application? also, If you could advise of any other components necessary.

Many Thanks

Martin

No, its fairly clear apart from the hood. Air filter is the Oval Cobra type and is fairly tight to the hood.

Thanks

Will the 8598 fit OK with an Edelbrock Airgap Manifold fitted?
