    Default Coil

    Folks,
    I would like your suggestions on an ignition coil. I have 78 280Z that is running fine, but am considering replacing the coil due to the fact that I'm sure the coil is the original one and is showing some rust spots. Would you suggest replacing with an OEM coil or one of the 'hotter' coils? Thoughts?
    I appreciate any comments.

    I'd go with a hotter coil. If you do that you can probably eliminate the ballast resistor too.

    Hey guys,
    This mention of replacing the coil, brings to mind the question of, whether or not, the Zs a have an inline resistor wire in the ignition or an external like the old Chrysler products used to use. The one I'm working on is a 73.
    Thanks!
