If the components are equal to those sold by Pertronix Corp., the conversion will be simple and effective.  No problems over a ten year period with the Pertronix.

That's the "Breakerless SE" conversion manufactured by M&H Fabricators; lots of Corvette guys use it, as it only uses one black wire to the coil and thus appears stock during judging. Haven't heard of any problems with it from the Corvette users.

I used the Crane XR-i HEI conversion.  It fits in your existing stock distributor.  I got it from Summit racing and it costs $64.  It was recommended I upgrade the coil as well, so I bought a black coil that looks exactly like the stock one for $30.  This was done about 2-3 years ago and still runs great.  One of the best upgrades you can do for your car.  Total cost about $100 and it was done in well under an hour, and I took the entire distributor out to do it.  But the job can be done leaving the distributor in your car.  I highly recommend this upgrade.  Here are the links to the items I used.
