    Check the inside of your dizzy, make sure the rotor is properly attatched. After that, I'd guess your computer took a shit.

    any parts of the dizzy in particular i need to check and if it checks out do u know of someone with a p28 they would sell for cheap

    and i'm positive the rotor is on right i had the dummy proof haynes manual by my side....and it only goes on one way

    return all to stock , sounds like your air fuel is going nuts causing the car to go into limp mode

    Check for spark. On all cylinders.

    Smell the exhaust. Does it smell like gas?

    got the car running after a new ecu and dizzy but i can't get the dizzy to the right position for the spark timing and all 3 bolt holes wont line up......also the old dizzy turned out to be for a 94-95 honda accord but it was modded to work on the y8 head
