Default stock COP or Kurt Urban LS distributor for my setup..

I have the stock pcm and coils as of now it runs i didnt drive it yet i only had it tuned. Billy is pushin me towards a BS3 to tune the motor to its full potential. I havent made a pass on it yet but before i do i was thinkin about maybe getting the kurt urban distributor setup. going to be shifting somewhere around 8000-8100 and probably going to get a bs3. will switching to the distributor make a difference?

solid roller
14:1 compression
motor is built the right way

I don't know all the specs of your engine, except what you have listed, but if Billy Briggs is suggesting it then you probably should get it.

There have been quite a few people that do quite well with the COP stuff. Eventually they get to the point where they need a dizzy setup. Both Mark Koehler and Mark Carlyle switched to a dizzy setup after last season due to spark issues. Not sure at what power level it makes sense, but most of the guys are turning a lot of RPM.
