I have no clue what "crappy" electronics you're referring to. If you have the five-pin ignition module, you already have the best system ever developed. The computerized systems were designed to eliminate ignition timing variation that led to increased tail pipe emissions. That was mainly caused by sloppy timing chains and sloppy distributor shaft bushings. That's why they went to the crankshaft position sensors and computer controls. I raced these engines for many years, and I worked at the dealership for ten years when those kits were available, and they were only produced to update breaker point systems from the '60s. If there was some other modification for a specific vehicle, there would have been a service bulletin produced. It still would not include a complete different ignition system. It would only address a modification to the system already tested and approved for that vehicle.
If you can find someone who still has a "Chrysler Power" book from the '80s, that listed all the racing and high performance parts that were available. The electronic ignition upgrade package consisted of what you already have. If you're having trouble with the ignition timing bouncing around, unbolt the fuel pump, then make a hook from a piece of coat hanger wire and push and pull on the timing chain to see how sloppy it is. It shouldn't move more than about 1/8" from substantial pressure.
