I didnt run into in any issues at all. It was pretty straight forward and I am def not a great tech. I would suggest getting a HEI distibutor, I have not but I just met a guy with it and his engine bay is a bit cleaner and has less wire crud. And he says it does make the whole deal run better but I have yet to have any issues with mine. There is a ton of info on this site about this so I am sure you can get the help you need if you run into a snag. The JeepForum guys are great.
