Rev Limiter Info Please

Hey you guys,
I have a MSD Street Fire HEI distributor PN8362 and wonder if there is something besides an MSD ignition(6AL, ect) that I can use to limit the rpm?
Thanks for all replies,
ssmonty

MSD has a digital module that has a built in rev limiter,I copied & pasted it for you,the traction control has nothing to do with daily drivers.

MSD offers an all new Digital HEI Module and performance coil that will fire up your stock HEI Distributor. The Module is a direct plug-in for the 4-pin HEI module and will produce up to 7.5 amps of current. This increased energy will continue through racing rpm reaching 9,000 rpm!
The Digital Module is extremely accurate in its delivery of energy resulting in more accurate ignition timing. Another unique feature is an adjustable rev limiter. You can dial in an engine saving rev limit ranging from 5,000-10,000 rpm. The other unique feature of this module is it’s patent pending technology that can detect if an illegal traction control has been installed. For street cars, you’ll never know this feature is there, but for circle track racers that are breaking the rules, they’ll find themselves with a low rpm limit activated!
If a traction control event is detected, the Digital HEI module will go into a rev limit mode. To get the most performance out of the Digital HEI Module, MSD offers a performance Coil as well. This Coil drops right in place of the original coil and fits under the stock coil cover.

Thanks a ton fellas,
I'm in process of building a 383 for my "86 SS Monte, and after sinking so much time and effort into it, I would hate to over rev it and mess it up. I've missed a shift a time or two, and sure it will happen again.
Just what I was looking for!
I owe you one,
ssmonty

PS- I don't understand why I can't see my posts or replies on the board unless I do a search?
