he's doing the right thing, moving forward one step at a time.
as far as the distributorless ignition, it's a good idea because the heavy spark retards needed to run the big boost often don't play well with an old-school distributor. the ignition module can only move the spark timing as far back or forward as the width of the rotor contact allows. on a big retard, you're already sparking on that trailing edge of the contact, then at high revs, the time window for the spark to jump starts dwindling down, too. the only way to cheat the problem is either with a high engery spark unit like an MSD or Jacobs, or, use a distributorless ignition system like the EDIS. considering that the oem's started with high-enegery ignitions like the HEI and TFI in the 70's and then went to EDIS type stytems in the 90's, I'd back the more current technology as the way to go.
