Manifold Absolute Pressure / Mass Air Flow / and Knock sensors can control a lot but not necessary with a simple points ignition and carb fuel system. No doubt, with drastic differences in fuel grade from country-to-country, a good computer with many references, is great. I remember drivers talking about such things years ago, but not sure if they still exist. In Texas I am fortunate. My only problem is staying away from too much timing advance, so I limit it to 36 degrees maximum, all in by 2900 rpm. These are the numbers I used with my 6-cylinder 1965 Mustang that worked great...with a carb. I do have a vacuum gauge to put in the dash and will probably mount it right in front of the driver between the Tach and Speedometer. Building the suspension now. The Bearings, bushings, shocks, springs, steering, etc. are mounted to the front crossmember...which I have removed.
