Yes, the ratings are correct. A previous version of my current coil pumped out hot six footers 
with two 5kV-at-.3A transformers of this type. They weigh about 35lbs. each and the GE part number 
is(are) 9T68Y5021G10. There are photographs of the tops of these transformers on the 
www.ddlabs-dot-com/tesla.html site.
