Distributor

I'm going to be installing a 460 in my 1978 Ford PU, replacing the 400 I've run for several years. Because the truck is used for towing an RV trailer, years ago the 400 was overhauled with a RV cam, Edelbrock SP2P intake, and recurved the existing Duraspark distributor, which brings me to my question. Because the max sustained RPMs I'm going to be running will be around 4000 or so, would an aftermarket distributor provide any benefit or should I just rebush my old Duraspark and put a new gear on it? The 460 will have a similar performance package that the 400 did with a Weland 8012 intake and slightly larger carburator and a similar cam.

Thanks,

Ron
