I wouldn't think so, unless somehow the current arced from the rotor down past
the antiflash cover into the electronics.  When I added a Lumenition system
to my car I had to toss the antiflash cover since it no longer fit.  (I
don't need it anymore, anyway - there is almost no metal where the ignition
electronics used to be.)  I haven't had any problems since.

I bought my Lumenition kit from TS Imports.  They had the best price at the
time, about 1 1/2 years ago.  Let me know if you need help with the wiring;
I still have my charts.  (If you want I can draw them up on the Mac and send
them to you via email.)
