I think the basic 123 distributor comes with ~8 different ignition curves that you can select.
The programmable one would be neat to use, as you can fine tune it to your setup, or use it with boost.

Another bonus with the 5.slow is that it the oil pump won't take a dump from high revs like the LS pumps do. Swap out the stock oil pump hex- drive for an ARP one and you're good for 7k rpm all day.

For 300-400hp, it's hard to beat the 5.slow platform. It's a lot more compact than a LS based engine, and with aluminum heads they're a smidge heavier than a redblock.
