    Probably. The Trick Flow heads are not really big in that area.

    Is the petronics tall like a mopar dist. ? I had to grind a butload off my raised port heads to fit the fast 2.0 dist. on my engine. the fast dist. is based off a chevy short dist. w/ a mopar flat on the bottom end. Works but was very time consuming . Only have about 1/16" of clearance, and had to clock it to clear the chevy type cap straps. A guys gotta do what he`s gotta do !

    Pretty sure it is tall, might even be taller than the mopar unit. Summit shows ones with the vacuum advance with no fitment note, but the ones without hasa note that they don't fit.
