Setting timing...

Ok, I'm an MS3-Pro newb here so please forgive me. I am almost complete with the wiring and I am trying to figure out how to set my cold timing. A little background is that I am using the LS coils on my Ford for a coil near plug setup.

What I need to know is if I set the timing so the crank is at top dead center, or should I align it for a total amount of timing that I want like the MSD setups do? Essentially allowing the MS-3 to pull timing out instead of allowing it to add timing to the initial.

Another question is if when I set the sensor if it should be on the leading edge of the tooth or the trailing edge? I think that I've read leading edge.

Additionally this is using the Hall sensor (3-wire) that I purchased from DIY and it utilizes a stock Ford cam sensor. The wheel is a 36-1 (of my own design) with an 5 tooth lead from the blank.
