getting a better coil
 
I'm looking at replacing my stock 83 cj ignition coil with a better one,and i'd love to eliminate the resister wire,and just run a straight 12volts to it,but i dont want the whole tfi setup,is there a coil that fits this bill?tia

o.k,thats logical,after installing the '84 ford 460 with ecc, cap, rotor, base,wires,(i printed your entire post on the upgrade last night)and go to install the tfi coil,can i run a 12 guage full 12v wire to it?also do i have to pull the motorcraft dist apart to put the ford 460 base on it?and what do i gap my plugs to after the upgrade?....(1980 360)thanx so much.

Re: getting a better coil
 
Thanx again TR,i'm getting closer to doing this whole deal,i still dont understand about the resister wire question,because of the below artical posted by you a few posts down.(i've just copied and pasted it).thanx again for your thorough answers.

The TFI coil will work with ALL of the DuraSpark modules. It's an odd looking thing, but can be mounted
in any orientation (even up side down).
The TFI coil uses a full 12 volts, and doesn't use a resistor of any kind.

I see that the 78 harness has the resistance in it, but not only do I have a 76 with the full upgrade(360) but I also rebuilt my harness myself with mostly 14 and 12 gauge wires without adding resistance (at least not on purpose) am I asking for trouble or what?Thanks

You hit the nail on the head,i thought the resister wire reduced the voltage,but now that i know thats not the case,what DOES the resister wire do ??thanx for your patience.(part of my confusion was that i asked about this on another bbs and got a VERY different answer,one that said to use a full 12v to the TFI)thanx again.

What do you guys think about MSD (the full set up). I have it with a high performance 360, headers, auto, 4:10 gears, and 33" swampers and it runs excellent in any condition.
