It sounds like upgrading/updating to an EI is the way to go. What options are out there and what are everyone's experiences with them?

I like the external matchbox design, as I don't care about a "stealth" look, I care about less chance of crossfire with a bigger cap. I have this design by the previous vendor Garry Boone and it has worked well, just 1 broken spring, and who knows what caused that. Good tech documents such as spare parts list, and troubleshooting makes the current vendor Tom most helpful.
No regrets on this upgrade.
