EDIT: Im sure my power figures seem low, but it was built for durability and longevity not peak power being its going into a road race car.

Coil on plug is a straight electrical connection, with far better coil saturation time and a hotter spark. Distributor ignitions have a lot more things to potentially go wrong. To use part of your line, "what it came with" is a far better mousetrap than what came before. There is a good reason it comes that way now! But then, you're using a carb too....

I find distributor ignitions to have far less issues and much less complicated at the track to diagnose and repair. LS c.o.p. Is not a direct connection it still utilizes a plug wire

Im not going to debate back and forth about what’s better and how you disapprove, many people still run distributors with no issues.
