more sbc ignition, new to hotrodders.

hey guys!
so i finally decided to make an account with hotrodders because im on my second engine build and i am still coming up with tons of questions as i get my parts list together while here in the desert. on my first build this site was my main source of info so i knew i had to come here first, there r lots of very smart engine builders on here and i want to start by thanking you all for sharing your info with us all.

so my first build i went with the pro comp 65k hei dist for my sb 383, not to bad but i blew the thing b4 i could really put it to the test. worth the money tho if your on a tight budget. but i have been spending allot of time at races and with older builders and im wondering about the msd setup, there digital 6al-2 box sounds like a great option but they say to go to the 7 series for over 12.5 comp, and 12.5 is roughly what ill be running. so do i need to go to the 7 or can i save up to for the 6al-2 and have a great ignition system? also i see alot of stock car racing setups having dual coils with there msd box, how does this work and what is the advantage? and is it something i should consider? o and one more thing is the 6al-2 any better then the 6al power wise? i mean all i really need is the rev limiter because because i dont pay attention to shift lights or redlines in the middle of a mud drag haha. i would just like to know if the timing adjustment on the box is a good thing to have for when i learn more about using it.
last off what dist would i use with this setup? do some work better then others for different motors and is the money worth the difference?
im looking forward to the replys and thankyou in advance, on my last build ignition was an area i did not know much about and had trouble with. but i still got 400+ hp with the rare small valved 882 heads on a 40 over 383, most said it couldnt be done so im hopin with better heads, cam, and ignition i can break the 500 mark!!!!

thanks, jake
