Q & A

What's in the Box

Flame-Thrower II coils feature a super low 0.6 Ohm primary resistance which make them the ideal coil for Ignitor II ignition systems, Flame-Thrower billet distributors, as well as many other high energy ignitions. Low resistance and improved turns ratio help to produce up to 45,000 volts. This higher voltage enables you to run larger spark plug gaps for added power and better fuel economy.

These coils are also compatible with most capacitive discharge boxes.

Application

6 Volt application with 0.6 ohm resistance for 8 Cyl engines

12 Volt application with 0.32 - 0.6 ohm resistance for 4, 6, & 8 cylinder engines

We actually carry a Blaster II coil from MSD, part number 547 8202. The MSD coil has .7 Ohms of resistance built in. The Flamethrower II #447 45002 has .6 Ohms of resistance built-in. I’m sure that it would work in place of the MSD. I personally would use the MSD coil 547 8202 to protect the warranty on the MSD distributor.

Do I have to use a resistor for this coil or is it a true 12 volt coil?

This coil has .6 ohm primary resistance to match up to distributors and electronic conversions with that ohm requirement. For example our distributors number 44710070 and the same distributor for other applications require .6 ohm of resistance. If running a distributor or a conversion needing 1.5 ohm of resistance we would recommend coil number 44745001 which has the 1.5 ohm of resistance or the necessary ballast resistor.

If you are looking to upgrade your stock coil, or want to compliment the performance of your MSD ignition, the Blaster Coil line is the right choice. Special 100:1 windings, kept cool in an oil filled metal canister, are used to provide maximum build-up of voltage.  The tower assembly is molded of durable alkyd material due to its high dielectric characteristics while wide spaced brass primary terminals prevent the possibility of spark. Can be used with a stock ignition, Blaster Ignition, or MSD 5, 6 or 7 Ignition Control.

The 0.8 ohm ballast resistor must be used with stock points ignition and Mallory Unilite applications. Includes MSD Power Tower top.

  • Improved output coil for stock points or electronic ignitions, Blaster Ignition, or MSD 5, 6, and 7 Series
  • Supplied with two plug wire boots, terminals, and jumper wire
  • 100:1 turns ratio and lower primary resistance produce high voltage output
  • MSD Red metal canister is filled with a premium grade oil for cooling
