Care to elaborate/educate me? Stock coil primary resistance is 3 ohm, the replacements are ~1.3-1.5 ohm. The addition of the 1 ohm resistor (up to ~2.3-2.5 ohm on the circuit) is to bring the overall resistance seen by the TCI back up closer to original specs, so as not to fry the internal components with excessive current. I'm not great with electrical theory, so please educate me if I'm missing something.

Anecdotal evidence from guys using this setup on Vmax's (higher redline than the Venture) shows improved starting and throttle performance over the stock coils using COPs with this setup. The only dis-satisfaction I've heard of vs. stock is from guys who fried their TCI by NOT using the additional resistors.

I guess I should've said *throttle response* vs. performance. I wonder if they're getting better throttle response because of the slightly lower resistance vs. stock...
