timing retard

Does anyone have any suggestions for a start retard box? Don't want to break the bank but need something reliable. I was running a digital 6 plus that had one built in but went bad and had to go back to the old 6 al box I had. Was told msd had one for around 40 bucks but have bn on there site and cant seem to find it. Looking for something with about 20* . Any input would be appreciated. thanks.

Send the box back to MSD for repair.

Got my mallory 685 box about 2 years ago for like $225 (price match baby!) has start retard, window switch, HS retard, boost capabilities and some other cool things like touch screen display. So Far in 2 years no issues and it takes 10* out on startup and I think i run 20-22ish inital and 37ish total.
