Default Need help

The dyno shop is ready for my car and I somehow managed to **** it up to the point that I'm now not getting any spark. I need some help guys, I'm so busy with work I don't have the time to **** with this car anymore and I'm about 8.5 seconds away from walking away from it until the spring.

Last week the car was running (idling) fine, and had been for months before. It was never driven on the road though since the MSPNP went in, basically just would turn it on once and awhile to move it and warm it up.

This is where I think I fucked up. I hooked my new netbook up to the MSPNP and was just looking around at ****. I did change a couple things (like the req fuel settings, and some idle stuff) but nothing major, at least I don't think I did.

Fast forward to today and I'm not getting any spark. It will crank, but wont fire. And the ignitor is super hot when you touch it. Actually the whole bracket is hot. I did what someone else on here recommended and moved all my grounds to the factory ECU ground location.

I'm just at a loss here guys. I'm not good with electronics and I really do not have the time for this to be happening right now. I put the Tial bov in and was going to paint the exhaust, but then once I found out it wasn't a fuel issue I just felt fucked. If anyone can give me some ideas of what I should do, and if anyone has these parts (ignitors, coil pack, whatever I might have fucked up) please let me know.

Anyone?

Would my best bet be to get a replacement ignitor and coilpack and just go from there? I checked all my grounds and everything seems fine. I just don't want to put in new parts and have this happen again.

Let me know if you need an ignitor (like PM me you address so it goes to email on my phone) since I'll be at UPS in a few hours anyways.

I just switched to COPS and can send you my backup.

Just want to say that Damon is the ******* man! I've had the craziest busy day running around picking up stuff I have to sell, boxing up packages that have to go out, and meeting with new clients. I've already had 3 coffees and almost a whole pack of smokes (and I quit a week ago ). All day I've been bummed about the car and the fact that I'm too busy to work on it. Then to come home and get a PM that he sent me ALL the electronic **** was pure awesomeness. Thanks to rharris19 too for helping spead the good karma along.

I will try and post the stuff I downloaded from the MS to my computer and see if it worked. I'm not sure if I did it right. And when I got into megatune, the spark table option was grayed out, I couldn't click into it. I was in a hurry and really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to MS, so I don't know if I was even doing the right thing.
