As someone who has the original Ignitor in another car, I also recommend the 
improved Ignitor II.  It takes a conscience effort to remember NOT to leave 
the key on when the car isn't running. I'd also recommend with the original 
Ignitor to have a sliding/coupling connector on the red wire. That way, for 
the times you need the key on without the car running you have a quick way 
of disconnecting the Ignitor. As a side note, cars with a resistance wire 
(as opposed to a balast resistor) should be wired back to the ignition 
switch (hummmm... wonder how I know).

 Do keep the points system and necessary tools in your Tiger. While the 
Pertronix is generally reliable I recall a few Tiger owners having issues 
and with the points available it allowed them to keep their car running.

Lastly I recall some concern regarding aftermarket coils.  That issue being 
the resistor matching the coil. If purchased as a set that problem should be 
a non-issue.
