The opti is a whole different ballgame compared to traditional SBC ignition. Its on the front of the engine, and the WP and balancer (just it, not the hub) must come off to get to it. If you are going to do it, alot of people go ahead and get a new WP since its off anyways, and also dont forget the front cover seals. If they start leaking (which they usually do after new opti and WP), you will have oil leaks back there that will kill the new opti. With those kind of miles, id go ahead and get a whole new oem opti and its vent harness assembly (around $275 w/vent harness from thepartsladi on ebay), for prevenative maintanince.
