MSD BLASTER wiring help!

Ok, I was doing a little reading on the oem ignition coil. I read that this resister was put in there to protect somthing in the event of a short in the tach line to ground. I was going to put in a blaster coil, so I was wondering if i could install an inline fuse into the circut. And am I correct in assuming this is how u wire it up?

1) The thick Black/Yellow stripe & Yellow wire go to the +positive terminal on the new coil
2) Blue & Green wire go to the -negative terminal on the new coil.

Also will this new coil draw too much power from the ignitor? I really dont wanna burn that up.

Which wires are for the tach?

Any help would be appriceated as I feel honda put this resister in there for a reason.

Yes the wiring is correct. You shouldnt need to use an inline fuse nor a resistor. As fas as I know no one on this board for the 5th gen has done so, and havent suffered any ill effects from not doing so. But to cover my @ss I have to tell you to do what you think is best. The tach wire is the blue or green wire that goes to the negative post.

it's doubtful that you'll ever need it but if it makes u feel safe go for the inline fuse, it couldnt hurt to have it

Ok to clarify things....I need to take the + on the battery off first and put it on last?

Sinse I will be selling my car in a few months with this effect anyone from wanting to buy it as I have something that is not stock and they might freek out about that. Just something I thought of. Although if I found another enthusiast im sure they would not care but someone that doesnt know much about cars might freek out i guess.

And how much is a stock coil?

As long as the install is clean there shouldnt be much any concern from a new buyer, enthusiast or not. Last I checked OEM coil packs were between $89- $120

Yeah ive been thinking the same but my father is still his stubburn self. And damn thats a rip off what they want for that little box.

And ROOSPLASH i sent you a PM about a bracket but I will have to get back to you depending on what route I go.

And one worry I have is how do I take off the distriputer cap withought messing something up. Is there anything I need to make sure i dont do when i remove the top.

When you disconnect your battery, take off the negative terminal FIRST. It will save you a heart attack and alot of sparks when the positive lead accidentally lands on some other metal
