      Ford V8 351C-460 with COMP 9000 Cap. Unlike some competitors, Mallory's E-Fire Distributor Series do not require an external ignition box. Full electronic timing control - both RPM and vacuum based. There are 7 preprogrammed custom advance curves or design your own using free windows-based software. The vacuum advance comes preprogrammed for high performance use or it can be custom curved using the design software included. The 3 BAR Map Sensor allows for fully adjustable boost proportional retard and can handle up to 30 pounds of boost. Single stage rev limiting, easy to adjust using the included software - no chips required. The free windows-based software runs on any laptop or PC, whether the distributor is in the engine or not. All Wiring Harnesses are included and feature weatherproof terminals for maximum dependability. All CNC-machined billet construction to ensure maximum precision. Interchangeable Distributor Cap feature allows for 2 popular cap styles to be used to best suit the application and available clearance.

      NOTE: This product is applicable to pre-1966 California and pre-1968 federally certified passenger cars. It is also applicable to non-emission controlled trucks and similar vehicles. It is not applicable or intended for use on any emission-controlled vehicles operated on highways or roads, unless otherwise noted.

      This distributor requires 12 volts to operate correctly. If the vehicle is equipped with an ignition ballast resistor (or loom resistance wire) in the wire between the ignition switch and the coil (+) terminal, you will need to run a new wire from the ignition switch which will supply 12 volts. Check a service manual for your vehicle to locate the ignition ballast resistor (or loom resistance wire). These are most common in vehicles that were originally equipped a point type or some early electronic distributors.

      Mallory’s Max-Fire and E-Fire distributors are not compatible with positive ground or 6-volt vehicle electrical systems.

      Advance Curves
      This distributor is equipped with 7 pre-programmed RPM based advance curves. Changing the advance curve is accomplished by accessing the switches on the circuit board once the cap is removed. You also have the ability to design your own custom advance curve by utilizing the optional software available from Mallory. You may also adjust the vacuum advance utilizing the same software.

      Ignition Coils
      The Max-Fire and E-Fire distributors are designed to work with most aftermarket high performance ignition coils. For optimum performance, we recommend using one of Mallory’s performance coils such as part numbers 29440 and 30440.
      Capacitive Discharge or Inductive Ignition Amplifiers (boxes)
      The Max-Fire Distributor is equipped with its own internal capacitive discharge system and does not need any additional ignition accessories. The E-Fire is compatible with most popular Mallory HyFire Ignitions.

      Spark Plug Gaps
      For street applications, use your engine manufacturer’s specifications. For racing applications, start with your engine manufacturers specifications, then experiment with and closely monitor various gaps and heat range spark plugs to achieve maximum performance.
      Electric Welding
      Unplug the distributor wire harness before welding on the vehicle.
      Spark Plug Wires YOU MUST USE suppression type (carbon core; spiral core; radio suppression core) spark plug wire. We recommend spiral core ignition wire, such as Mallory PRO SIDEWINDER® Ignition Wire. Suppression type spark plug wires prevent false triggering and the possibility of premature ignition or accessory failures. DO NOT USE solid core (copper core; stainless steel core) spark plug wire with any electronic ignition system or accessory. Solid core spark plug wire causes radio frequency interference (ignition noise; static). Radio frequency interference causes false triggering (preignition; spark scatter) and premature ignition or accessory failures.
