Default Key On Constant 12v Power Source

Hey gang. I am attempting to install a Holley Sniper system in my 76 Scout ii. I am almost done but need to connect one wire from the efi to a 12v power source that is key on with constant power even when cranking. I am useless when it comes to electrical. I know that when I put a 9v battery on my tongue it gives a good zing and that's the extent of my knowledge. Right now I am leaning to the positive side of my coil but don't want to fry the new Sniper unit. Thanks for any help.

If you are certain there is not a resistance element in the positive coil circuit, you could use it. If there is a resistance element in that circuit, run a new wire from the same circuit feed at the ignition switch to the Holley unit and retain the positive coil circuit intact.
