Distributor vs Coil on Plug?

What advantages does the Coil on Plug that the EF-Onwards V8s had over the EB/ED Distributor system?
Ford obviously dont admit any power advantage because Kw ratings were the same in both models (even though the EF had 25% less exhaust backpressure and a cold air 'pickup' for the intake)


Is it possible to convert the EB/ED over?

To my small knowledge the triger for the coils comes from the eec5 [five]computor.As in the injectors.The new system doesn't wear out as quick for pollution in the u.s.No real gain in power.No maintiance????? unless you took it to Furry Ford in Sydney.
