Re: msd blaster coil

you got them mixed up, there should be one negative wire going to the coil not two, and two wires for the positive of the coil...

i don't know if this is that same as your wiring or not, but this is how its suppose to go, wires might be different color.


OEM coil Blue wire ------> negative side of the coil

next you need to get a Y splitter and join these two wires to positive side of the coil

OEM coil Black w/yellow stripe , & Yellow wire ------> positive side of coil

Re: msd blaster coil

ummm. shouldn't need a resistor. Not sure what you're refering to. I have a Blaster coil as well and it took me a couple head scratches to figure out why no start. fezz_tec is right. I didn't install any kind of resistor and its been running for over a year.

Re: msd blaster coil

Yeah I had the same problem when I installed my Blaster coil in my Civic EK with a h22 swap. His wiring is correct and I didn"t use any resistor either, I'm not sure why you think you need one.

Resistors are used in older cars with points
