MSD Coil and Coil Wire Question

I just bought a complete MSD system (6AL, Blaster 2 coil, Pro-Billet distributor, 8.5mm wires).

I also purchased the 84039 coil wire kit to use with my Blaster 2 coil. The wire does not fit the coil directly. The coil wire kit came with a terminal adapter post, apparently to adapt the HEI wire they put in the kit to the coil.

The whole thing looks like a bad idea. The adapter is not going to stay on the coil unless I tape it on there. Even then I'm not so sure it would make contact with the terminal inside of the coil. Is there something I am missing here???

I'm not sure why they did this since the kit is specifically for the Blaster 2 coil, so you would think that they would give the correct wire instead of an adapter.

Like I said; maybe I am missing something.

I plan on buying a coil boot and terminal to make it work like MSD should have done in the first place, but I really want to get this thing runnig in the mean time.
