Is a 100mn AB's improvments to sig tanking worth the extra powergrid costs and such from not using a 10mn MWD? primarily looking at missile boats.

Actually, you don't want to fit that 100MN at all. It's a battleship-grade module, and will chew up your capacitor far too quickly while leaving you with no fitting room if mounted on a cruiser.
Besides which, it won't do anything. if you look at the details for an afterburner, you will see the entry "Max velocity bonus" which is capped at 135%. this represents the absolute upper limit to the speed boost you can get from that module, and it's the same across size categories - you'll get the same maximum 135% extra velocity from a 100mn as you would from a 10mn.
Finally, the mass addition from the bigger module would slow your ship way the hell down while trying to turn and align.
there is no reason to fit a battleship-sized AB or MWD on a cruiser.
