New ignition system questions

Ok guys, so I have recently replaced my engine and carb and i like it.
Next up on the chopping block is my ignition system, and suspension (but thats forh another thread)

Disclaimer: I am a noobie at cars. Ive had this camaro for 5 years, but I have never really learned how to truly take care of her. I am changing that now. I am doing it all myself and paying a guy to help teach me while we install these parts! (i have no car buddy friends) so keep the noob status in mind when i talk "car talk."

Anyways I am looking to order ignition system parts and so I was looking for opinions on good kits or systems I can get to replace my distributor, coil, plugs/wires, ignition system (anything else?).

Currently my car has MSD and they never done me wrong yet, so I am leaning that way but I am up for suggestions. Here is what I have put together so far.

MSD Pro Billet Distributor
MSD Blaster 3 (coil)
MSD 6A, PN 6200 (Ignition system)
MSD wires?
Bosch platinum +4 plugs

Do I need anything else?

STAY AWAY FROM BOSCH PLUGS WITH MSD. STAY AWAY FROM BOSCH PLUGS WITH MSD.
LOL They dont last but a few thousand miles and they start to degrade. My MSD uses NGK plugs. Ive found that a 'cooler' NGK plug combined with MSD makes my car very reliable.
Stay all MSD like you have. I recommend different plugs tho, or youll be swappin them every few thousand miles....
