two ballast resistors?
« on: March 16, 2011, 10:53:20 PM »

I'm almost done collecting the parts I'll need to scrap my leanburn and put on an electric ignition system.  I'll write my other questions in this forum later, but right now I have a question about the ballast resistor.

My car already has one - a 2-prong.  The "orange box" Mopar conversion kit I bought also came with a 2 prong resistor.  Everyone says I need a 4 prong ballast resistor for the electric ignition.  But because space is at a premium on the firewall, and I don't want to drill holes if I don't have to, I was wondering if I could ditch both 2 prong resistors and get this instead:

Wouldn't this work just as well, too?
