Would adding an MSD ignition system "cure my ills" with regards to ignition issues?

Alex, do you have ignition problems now? You should check your timing, and see how much advance you are running.

Patrick, I recently checked the timing..it's at 5BTDC at around 950RPM idle. Sorry about my confusion but I figured that with engine backfire, the issue was with regards to ignition and how it relates to improper advance/retard when under boost. So, my thought process was that this could be controlled/eliminated with a programmable MSD system and while also reducing the risk of detonation.....am I way off here?....thanks in advance for further advice!
