A reliable source for MSD products is Summit Racing.
Link to MSD-6AL (6420)
Link to Boost Controller MSD 8762
MSD's P/n 8762 boost control module gives you control of the boost retard start pressure and rate of retard from 1-3 deg. per psi boost (15-deg total retard max.).
The MSD 6-BTM (P/N 6462) integral ignition/boost retard system does not give you access to retard onset pressure, only rate of retard, again 1-3 deg/psi, max 15-deg retard. About $85 less than separate ign/module.

If you chose to run an MSD ignition, dig out and remove the resistor in the rotor (between coil contact and rotor out to distributor cap) and solder in its place a solid piece of 12awg copper wire (common household "romex" wire). Re-epoxy to assure the wire stays put at high rpm. Spark power is hot enough to eat the resistor.
