little update. i got the MS back from Scott a few weeks ago, he said he had reversed the spark outputs, and there was another issue with the fan control.

i finally got a chance to work on it again yesterday. I hooked the MS back up, and hooked up the new coils that i bought. The car still wont start, although it does crank better. Tuner studio still shows intermittent RPM, same as before i sent it to Scott.

I swapped the stock ECU back in, and the car fired and ran on the first try.

I really need some help here. Any ideas?

I guess that's a good a place to start as any. Im going to clean up all the grounds this weekend and have a look at the harness as well.

cleaned up the grounds today, they looked pretty good from the start.... i also realized i sent the harness back to with the MS, so unless he chimes in and says he didnt check it i'm going to assume its fine.


no change. still shows rpm's, acknowledges i'm cranking, then drops to 0rpm, no cranking.



i'm considering giving up, installing the stock ecu and running the car NA for the rest of the summer. it's literally been down months because of this MS issue
