Resistance doesn't tell us enough about the behaviour of the coil under load. It's useful to check, but probably isn't the end-all of the coil diagnosis.

I agree on not throwing parts at a problem - wastes time and money. But you can easily sell the set to anyone here on the forums. Any track or drag race enthusiast should have a spare set whenever they go to a track event.
