The Pertronix I requires 1.5 ohms coil, whereas the MSD coil is .7 ohms.  It
might be best to run the Pertronix coil that is 1.5 ohms.   Much more likely
to NOT get stuck out somewhere you don't want to be.

Not a Tiger application in my case - but..., I know  quite a few of the
Tiger folks are running the Pertronix ignition module ( the original version
in my case). Are any of you running the MSD Blaster 2 coil (8203)?  I am not
planning to use the MSD box, only the Pertronix and the MSD coil.  I've read
on the internet where some have no issues at all. However, there are those
who say that Pertonix told them NOT to use the MSD coil.

So, it is a bit confusing. If you have had success with the combination I'm
planning, I'd like to hear from you.  Also, I'd like to know if you use a
ballast resistor.  MSD says the resistor, .8 ohms, is only needed for

Thanks, Tom
