Default MS Reset issues FYI

So randomly yesterday afternoon MS just started resetting while I was driving usually did it right after I got on the throttle hard about 4k rpm but also did it several times while idling at a stop light since I wasn't moving it killed the car.

Elesjuan and I could not figure this **** out for the life of us. We jiggled every piece of wiring in the car trying to make it reset and we couldn't. Well I noticed 2 screws with nuts on the end have fallen out of one of my coils freeing itself from the coil bracket.

Long story short apparently if its not screwed to the bracket MS does not like that at all and will keep trying to reset.

After 4 hours dicking with it and trying out another set of coils I realized all I needed to do was screw the ****** back to the bracket all is now well.

I had the same issue. Coil bracket was loose. Took me forever to randomly figure that out.
