Dizzy question..


Recommended Posts


I have a 280zx electronic dizzy fitted to the L26 (carbed)...now, I went to get a new coil, but after reading the bosch catalogue for the part no....being that it now has elec. ignition I was going to use a coil without a ballast resistor, but I read in the bosch coil catalogue that I should use a coil with one...is it just me, or shouldn't I use a coil without one? Is the 280zx dizzy incapable of it, is bosch stupid or am I mad?! I have always KNOWN the HEI ignition has no need for a low voltage output due to the fact that there are no points to fry, so whats going on?

Cheers ppl!!:stupid:

Leeroy , you are most definately right just like the HEI, if you use a ballast you would be degrading the system. So the short answer is you do not need the ballast resistor, but I would recommend a coil suitable for the 81/82 Zed.

I suggest you reconfig the electronic wiring as per this post


this will remove the need for ever.

good luck
