Not to add any confusion, but all coils have resistance in the primary windings. Stock coils are 1.4 ohms. The 1.5 ohms of the Flamethrower coil, for all practical purposes, doesn't change anything. (Being that it's only a 0.1 ohm difference.)
That being said, if you have bypassed the resister wire, the wire to the "I" terminal no longer serves a purpose, as there is no longer a resistance wire to bypass during starting. Whether you leave the wire there or not is personal preference - it doesn't do anything anymore, but it won't hurt anything, either.
I would not remove the resister wire if you are using points, or they won't last very long. At all.
