    I have not found a straight forward answer:

    I plan to do a Mopar / Prestolite conversion.
    This will be for a carb setup.

    Is Duraspark limited to a certain coil resistance? Does anyone know the resistance value on the preferred coils?

    Is there a benefit of the Bronco or GM coil vs a standard 1.5 ohm canister?

    I have an aftermarket Accel coil I would like to use if I can.

    It should be listed in several locations like the ignition FAQ.
    The electronic coils should be less than 1ohm.
    The GM and ford coils are normally less than .5 ohms.
    The round coil options are normally .7 ohm.
