Ballast resistor/ignition


Recommended Posts

Having now seen this issue raised in several guises, I asked Lumenition if a ballast resistor is needed with regard to my particular setup, which I guess is similar to other users..........

Optronic system with a Lucas Gold Sports coil.

Their reply is as follows:


"The answer to your question is very simple. The Optronic system should be

used with a coil of between 3 and 3.5 ohms. If the coil you are using has a

resistance of between 1.5 and 2 ohms you will need a ballast resistor."

Hope this is of help to others
