My wiring is a mess. Somebody bypassed the starter solenoid with a remote solenoid. Dont care I like it actually. The car now has HEI. Wiring is as follows. The original resistance wire come out of the connector on drivers side. At the end of this is a ring terminal with a yellow wire tied in.

The yellow wire goes to the remote solenoid. Off the same lug I have my power for my HEI. Now assuming the resistance wire is feeding power to my HEI what would the effects be? Car starts and shuts off fine. Do I need to remove the resistance wire? Thanx, Sean.

You want full voltage to the HEI.
The more you rev the engine and put load on the HEI, the more amps it draws.

You can either dig into the harness plug and extract the terminal and replace it with a solid wire or go in through the spedometer cable hole and plug into the fuse box. Marked IGN, I think.
I did the second method.
