Electronic ignition choices

I am about 3/4 of the way through the overhaul of the atomic 4 in my Newport 30. I am replacing nearly all of the ignition parts anyway and have decided to go with electronic ignition. My question is what direction should I go, the Ignitor kit from moyers or the full kit from indigo? I am going to have to get plug and wires reguardless of which way I go. What are you guys' thoughts on both systems. Cost is a factor but not the only one.

I doubt if you could go wrong with either but I've used the Indigo for years and years with no problem whatsoever. If you have any problem with an electronic system it will more than likely be the coil which tends to run hotter (in a temperature sense).
