Need help electrical

I am installing a FiTeck 30003 go street EFI system in my 34 which has a 1986 302 mustang motor in it. My problem is that I have put in electronic ignition, what it has to have. they say that I now have to have 12 volts to the distributor and coil as the old ones where  not a full 12 volts and there is a resister in the line that I must take out.The resister is above what I think is the regulater .The power to the coil comes out of the regulator threw the resister 11.7 in and 11.7  to the coil. Should I run a new line to the coil from the key at 12 volts and leave every thing else as is.

The marking on what I think is the regulator is

           MOTORCRATT

           ELLETRONIC

           REGULATOR 

           FOPU-10316-AA  NEG

           SHORT-CIRCUIT-PROTECTOR

Can't help with the resistor issue but I am very interested in the Fitech.  Just wondering where you purchased?  I was going to pick one up as well.  I have been flipping and flopping on EFI for the past year, FAST EZ EFI, Holley Sniper, Fitech, etc.. Interested to hear what drove you to the Fitech......................................... Rhys.

Hi

 

I just installed one on my truck ,runs good so far.To answer your question,yes you need a full 12 volts.

The whole power supply is supposed to be wired separate directly to the battery.Give me a call if

you have any questions.

You have 11.7v at the coil; is this measured with the engine not running? If so check the voltage at the battery and see if it is the same as at the coil.
If your battery isn't fully charged as in it's been sitting around for awhile you will measure less than 12v.
If you are using the ignition system/charging system from the 86 engine you shouldn't have a "ballast resistor" as they were used on points type ignition systems.

ballist resistors are still used today

IF I wanted to run a MSD coil in an 80's cryco front wheel drive turbo/efi car I'd have to add the needed ballast resistor to match the coil to the resistance needed for the car's ignition and control system

ecu damage could result otherwise .. but not in all cases

an accell super stack coil on the other hand works fine as it has the same resistance as the stock fwd dodge coils did

be sure to check the resistance the ecu's manufacturer calls for first
