Default how to install a msd blaster coil on a 85 tfi ignition

i have a 85 efi 2.3 and i just bought a msd blaster 2 cylinder coil and am confused on how to hook it up i know you cut the 2 + and - and hook them up to the new terminals but on one of the 2 red wires it runs to some sort of cylinder and looks like it grounds to the original coil and also does the 2.3 have a ballast resistor already or do i need to get one or can it be ran without one
