THe sport's coil has an internal ballast.  What I need to know is how to
determine if my car has a ballast on the ignition line,  or in the coil.
I'm just not sure what the PO has done already.  Not sure I really want to
know, as well.....  <grin>

Isn't this backwards?  It's my understanding that the ballast resistor's
purpose in life is to PREVENT a coil with no internal resistor from burning
out prematurely.
