Is it a billet hei distributor?

I suggest looking up the msd manual for the distributor. They often have good wiring diagrams for multiple options for setup.

Sure it will.

I've triggered them off of simple 4 pin gm ignition modules, off of ford dura spark boxes, and even Chrysler chrome boxes.

Gm 4 pin is easiest to wire and I'll be glad to teach you fine people how to do this as soon as I figure out how to post a picture. Seeing as this is my first post on here ever, give me just a tad of leniency, and I'll figure it out.

Short of that pm me your number and I can get you fixed up in like 5 mins.

I ran an MSD marine distributor on my last boat and fired it off of one of their coils. Ran great!
