Think of it as an Ignitor with brains.

Millions have upgraded their point-type ignitions with the ignitor electronics module over the last 25 years, gaining horsepower quicker starting and longer plug life.
Ignitor II takes it a step further by adding a powerful new microcontroller, that controls the dwell period, for the best possible spark over the entire RPM range. Ignitor II offers enhanced performance levels only found in the more expensive "box type" ignition systems.
Ignitor II also shares the same features that make the current ignitor so popular. It fits entirely inside the distributor for a stock look, installs quickly and easily, and you'll never change or adjust points again.
Ignitor II allows the use of low resistance coils for high RPM performance. We recommend our new resistance (0.6 ohm) coil for use with your new ignitor II.
Don't forget the original ignitor is still available... and it's one of the world's great no brainers. See your dealer or call too-free.

LBCarCo's Little Guide to Selecting a Coil

When selecting a coil for your LBC, normally, 4 and most 6 cylinder engines will use the 3.0 ohm coils. If you are going to be mostly racing with your 4 or 6 cylinder LBC then you may alternatively use the 1.5 ohm coil. For 8 cylinders you would always use the 1.5 ohm coil.

For ballasted systems use the 1.5 ohm coils regardless. (Ballasted systems were used on many 1975 and later LBC's) One way to determine if your system is ballasted is to see if you have a white wire with a light green tracer attached to the positive side of your coil. If you do you system is ballasted and order the 1.5 ohm coil. Non-ballasted systems normally will have a plain white wire attached to the positive side of the coil.
