The ignition my car has in it is a Lumenition ignition.  The DPO installed a
chopper in the distributor that was for a six cylinder, not a four.  Hence,
all the problems I've been having.  I spoke to the people who distribute the
Lumenition kits.  He suggested I order a new coil as it's probably been
overheating since it was installed.  That was almost 4K miles ago.  Just to
be safe,  I decided to get a new one as they're relatively cheap.  

I'd like to get the Lucas Gold (sport coil), even though my ignition may be
ballasted.  The stock 1500 Midgets were ballasted. How can I determine if
the ballast has been removed by the PO or not?  It's necessary to remove it
for the Lumenition to operate correctly and to keep the sport coil from
burning out.
