    I unloaded the Charger in the 34 degree weather we are having anyway I have the FBO and coil in but I don’t know how to bypass the 4 pin ballast resistor.

    Don typically includes a short jumper wire with his kits but I'm not sure on the 4 pin, If no one else chimes in, I would give him a call to be sure. You don't need one at all with his set up but I'm just not familiar with that 4 pin and if anything else is needed

    I’ve tried to call five times already today, it goes straight to voicemail. The wire was in the kit. There seems to be no instructions anywhere, on the web or with the kit.

    He is pacific time. They may be closed on Monday as well, best time to reach him is afternoon. I'm surprised you didn't get instructions, double check the boxes or in the little bags

    I got ahold of Don and figured out the jumping ballast resistor aspect. Thanks for all that helped.

    there are 3 ways to make it...

    jumper wire as exposed

    Removing all plugs from ballast plugs and splice all together but the green traced red one which you won't need anymore for it


    OR my fav one ( which has being talked latelly ):

    remove the resistor from the primary section ( around 1 ohm ) on back of ceramic piece and replace it with a wire. this will keep stock look.
