The MSD system is excellent. It will be accurate
to about 9K rpm, and create a strong accurate spark
under heavy boost and with nitrous. Now, if that's the
kind of engine you have, then you need to spend the big
bux on it.
However, I suspect none of that applies to you. So
switching to a billet distributor with a control box,
fancy coil, big wires, etc, will not change the
performance of your engine. You can always pick up a
few ponies with a better ignition curve, but there are
cheaper ways to accomplish this.
But it will make your wallet significantly lighter.
And we know that less weight is always better :)
