Sprinters are good for short distances, and marathon runners are steady over time—but what if you could stitch Tyson Gay together with Steve Prefontaine to create an unstoppable force of intense jolts, lasting strength and a wicked moustache? Too late. It’s already been done and it’s called the Pertronix Flame Thrower III Ignition Coil.
On the strength side, the Flamethrower III Coil generates up to a blistering 45,000 volts of electricity at an incredibly low 0.32 Ohms of primary resistance. On the stamina side, it recharges to its peak strength up to 70% faster than other performance coils. So, your plugs are running at full power even when you’re racing along at high RPM. Add it up, and this blazing blend makes the Flame Thrower III the best choice for your capacitive discharge ignition.
Besides turning your accelerator into a hair-trigger, the Flame Thrower III also adds an eye-catching look under the hood. It comes in your choice of chrome or black, and it’s even street legal in all 50 states. Plus, it comes with a 90-day warranty.

1964 Chevy Corvair
I am restoring a 1964 Corvair that has Pertronics ignition system, I understand that needs a 1,4 ohms ballast resistor. Coming out of the distributor I have two wires; one red and one black. 1.-The way I am trying to connect it is: pink wire coming out of the ignition switch (12 volts/battery voltage) goes to one side of the ballast resistor. 2.-The red wire coming out of the distributor is going to be connected with the previous pink wire (12 volts/battery voltage) 3.-The black wire coming out of the distributor is going to be connected to the (-) negative side of the coil. 4.-An extra wire to connect the other side of the ballast resistor (9 volts?) to the (+) side of the ignition coil. Appreciate your help. Julio
