1956-1974 Corvette Flame-Thrower III Ignition Coil (Chrome)
The Flame Thrower III Coil by Pertronix is the perfect ignition coil for the Ignitor III ignition conversion. Ultra-low resistance of 0.32 Ohm and improved turns ratio provides even more performance - 45,000 volts while charging faster at high RPMs. Rapid charge time means maximum spark energy is sustained. Peak current typically charging 30-70% faster than other coils. Epoxy filled provides superior winding support for high vibration environments.
Legal in all 50 states and Canada (CARB OE #D-57-21).
How did a big-rig headlight maker turn into a leader in the performance ignition industry? The credit goes to Tom Reh, the CFO of PerTronix in the early nineties. After selling the headlight part of their business, Tom and his team changed the name of the company to PerTronix and focused all their manufacturing efforts on the Ignitor and Flame-Thrower product lines. Today, their systems often look stock, but perform much better than OE ignition systems. Zip features a complete line of PerTronix Ignition products for C1-C3 Corvettes.
