Default installed cops, now rough.....

So got them wired up correctly checked like a million times!!! don't have standalone im running paralell with stock, tach is off by.... i'd say 1k rpm and it just doen't seem to have alot of power also i didn't install the 10ku resistors either could that be it? I did not drive it but i do have a log..... just small revs up to maybe 1500-2000, my settings are as states 3.5 cranking 2.5 running. what about the minimum discharge period? leave at .5?
Anything else need to be changed what do i do with the old connector for the coil pack?
I know my spark and fuel maps suck I've been working on them constantly
help me out guys.
If i can't figure it out I'll need a working ignitor asap!!

Your problem is the COPS take them off and send them to me along with $100 and put your car back to stock and to problem will go away!

What kind of connectors did you end up using?

If your tach is reading incorrectly, then I don't think the problem lies in the coils or plugs.

did you make absolutely sure they don't touch down at the base. You may have to bend the pins a little in opposing directions to ensure this before pouring in the silicone.

+1 on not being sure why your tach is off. Only *theory I can offer is that the connectors are touching their nieghbors, and you are getting "extra" tach signals through one of the leads.

Soo this is retarded FWIW My car runs again...... the problem was one of the wires (under gutted ignitor) fell off.. cylinders 1&4.... lol so rewired it and to my facination 2 and 3 stop working, lol soo rewired the whole thing plugged it in and success!!!
Also fabbed up the hold down bracket, my college has a workshop with tons of power tools that I just found lol..... It was soo easy with al the right tools!! Tach makes sense now, right? half tach because half of the cylinder where working.
