You keep the resistor,toss the condensor.
The resistor still works to filter out noise going to the radio,etc.

The capictor was for ignition noise on the old AM radios.  Those were the old steel core wires.   The invention of resistor wires did away with all that.

What is wrong with the factory wiring that you have to go around it?
