basically I think that the lack of resistor raises the current too much for the transistors to handle, this overheats the module, so I'm adding the resistor to see how it works.

If it still gives me trouble I'll do the HEI conversion.

too bad, because I really like the ability to retard the ignition while crankin that the duraspark module has.

The local ford dealer does not have them modules anymore, is the same in the USA? why?

and also why no performance brand name has a duraspark module?

are all ford performance cars using MSD or the like ignitions?
