You will want to run the wire to the IGN UNfused terminal on the fuse panel, which is fed by the ignition switch with key on. A 12 gauge wire is recommended.
you meant the yellow wire went to the positive side of the coil.

Here is a very nice alternative to wiring to the fuse panel as it directly replaces the ignition wire from the key switch to the ignition coil.
