I have the MSD 6-BTM on my engine but haven't played around with the timing yet so i have it set to zero for now. Before i rebuilt my current engine i was using it to control my timing on a turbocharged 79 3.0 SC CIS engine and it worked well.

My only argument about the different units would be yes the other is more programable which can only be a good thing, but when my turbo builds boost, the milliseconds between 2lbs and 5lbs is moot, hell the difference between 2lbs and 14lbs is only a blink of the eye. In drag racing maybe it's negligible.
