Timing control yes/no ??

I'm hoping to finally get my car running later this summer. As usual with projects things cause delays. Now technology has changed. I'm going efi. So I'm curious if I should run timing control or not. I currently have a new in the box Mallory vacuum comp 9000 8658001 distributor and a mallory 685 box. I liked the 685 box since it had starter retard.

But Now I'm debating to a timing control setup with MSD. Car will primarily be a cruiser with some track time. So am curious if I should switch to the MSD setup.

Re: Timing control yes/no ??

If the ECU you are using with your EFI can't control timing I would highly recommend MSD's Grid. I ran one before I decided to go EFI. The ECU i went with is the Holley Dominator so I no longer needed the Grid. The Grid worked great and was able to record data which was great for the track.
