Coil wiring question

This seems like a odd question, but I am wiring up my coils. I bought a used lt-8 system and I am trying to wire the coils. Trailing no problem. The leading is a single coil system, in the wiring diagram it says a power+ and a L1 and a L2. Do I just jump these together or what?

Thanks for the help

What coil packs are you using?
You MUST AND I REPEAT MUST use factory s4/5 coil packs and ignitors.

I am using the Factory coils, but for now I have them wired up without the ignitors. I guess I need to wire in the ignitors, but am not sure how they wire up.

Msd

Can anyone verify this. If I have my distributor at -5 degrees. And my static timming on my microtech at +5 degrees. Does that put me at 0 degress prior to starting the car? Also my Ignition timming at idle is +10 on the microtech ignition map. When I unlock my timming map on the microtech and I put a timming light on my pulley should I be at +5 degrees?

Get rid of the static timing. Make that 0.

Then with the +10 at idle you will have at +5.
