Re: 18,000V coil upgrade

Resistors for ignition module's benefit, not coil. Coil would be happy
as a clam at 12V (that's how MSD, Pertronix, etc run them). Will
slowly cook factory ECU however.

Simply install new coil where old one used to be.

At 18,000 volts don't think plug gap should be increased. Doesn't
really qualify as HEI in my opinion.

Nevertheless should notice improved performance, especially in cold
