I'll be making a build thread soon, I have a lot of work done to the car and I've learned a few good lessons.

I'll be looking into bigger injectors once I get the MS figured out. Over the weekend I managed to completely screw up my base map trying to fix the idle. The idle is now worse and the car wont run once it warms up .

Since installing the MSPNP3 I've driven about 75 miles, done 1 doughnut, tried to lower the idle, and ruined the tune possibly the COP kit too. Now it wont start, it just cranks and pumps fuel so I can confidently say its not getting spark at the right time or at all. I haven't had time to swap the stock coils back on to test it and I did reload the base map but it didn't fix the issue.
I'm taking it down to Moore Automotive in VA to sort the tune/ignition issues out next week, but if I could drive the car down there it'd be so much less of a logistical nightmare.

Why don't you pull the coils out, stick spare spark plugs in them and use the test mode in Tunerstudio to check if they're working or not?

That's a good idea, way less work! Hopefully tonight I'll have time to give that a try, thanks.
