The MicroSquirt is water resistant (splash) and heat tolerant to a reasonable amount, engine bay installs will be fine as long as it's in a protected area away from extreme heat and water.

Ignition control is in absolute degrees, and although it can be connected to the distributor green wire, the distributor mechanical advance and vacuum advance mechanisms need to be removed and the shaft locked to obtain a steady signal. It would be simpler and better to add a crankshaft trigger of some sort to get a solid high resolution signal for accuracy.

Stock CDI control should be possible in theory depending on the unit you have, though many have gone to something like the MSD ignition box instead.

The ignition section in the MicroSquirt manual explains some of the options available http://www.msextra.com/doc/pdf/Microsquirt_Hardware-3.4.pdf
