Blaster coil install on 1998 boat
I suspect my original coil on 350 V8 OMC stern drive boat is weak. I am replacing it with a Blaster 2 coil.
The stock igintion has a electrionic ignition model loacted in the distribitor. The stock coil has an external resistor.
Can I just use the exiting resistor, or do i also need to add the MSD 8214 Ballast resistor in series to the existing resistor? The exiting coil has a resistance of 2.1 ohms and I getting 1.3 ohms from the Blaster. So it looks like I need to add the .8 MSD resistor.
Just don't want to hurt the stock electronic ignition. Would it hurt to add the .8 ballast anyway?
