      A 15 with a 7 or...

      While working on the car to see why it runs like crap I swapped DPR's and the car wouldn't start.
      I swapped back to the DPR that the car had on...

      I have checked the Ign. module on the car when it was running and sometimes they do get quite warm. I believe that a couple of the modules that died on me were due to them getting so hot that the...

      The coil is fine.
      I have tried 2 different coils, an OEM Bosch coil that came on the car when I acquired it and a new Bosch coil.
      Both times the engine ran the same.

      I do believe now that the...
