Questions: What type of coil can be used? If coil requires a ballast resistor, do the internal electronics replace the resistor or do I still need to use it? Do I remove the stock condenser?
Question By: Dave on Jan 1 1970 12:00 AM
You want to use an internal resist coil. But you can use an external resist coil. The instructions come complete with how to wire up either. It is very simple to do.
