Another Pertronix Ignitor II & Flamethrower II Question...
I want to install the Ignitor II on my 280se 4.5, but do NOT have a flamethrower II coil that is recommended with the conversion. The ignition coil currently on the car is a blue PVL unit that seems to be a recent install by the previous owner. I do not know if this coil has "internal resistance" that would allow me to use it as one would a flamethrower 2, so the question is can I use the ballast resistors (that are already in the car) in the setup to utilize the PVL coil that I have (or even the Bosch unit in my parts car)?
