Default Coil suggestions

I running the stock electronic Dodge distributor on the 440, instead of using the crappy Dodge lean burn electronic ignition, I'm using an Accel GM electronic module. I'm having trouble finding out what coil I should run with it, any suggestions?

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

GM's HEI coil spec is 0.5 ohms primary resistance. Anything higher will limit voltage output. Stick with .5 and you'll be good!
