Limiting Mech. Adv on MSD Streetfire

I currently have an MSD Streetfire dizzy. I am wanting to limit my mech advance to around 12-15 degrees. Is there a kit you can buy to do this, or will I just have to engineer something. If it is something I have to engineer, is there anybody who has done it that can give me some pointers?

I have used the search function, and didn't find exactly what I was looking for.

The StreetFire unit doesn't have a Kit to limit Mech Advance, only a Spring Kit to tune at what rpm Mech advance is added is available.
You'll have to disassemble it and use something to shorten the slot.
