    I pulled a couple of plug wires on my MSD Ignition system that fried a bunch of stuff.
    Since then, I have replaced the MSD Blaster 2 Coil, my OBD1 Dizzy, Ignitor, ECU (x2)and Main Relay.
    Now, it just purrrs at idle (1000 RPM), but when I try to REV it, it won't REV past 3300+ RPM???
    When I do, the motor wants to BOG DOWN and will SPUTTER off and on...
    I checked the TPS Sensor, my Fuel Pressure is good @ 40-50 psi.
    It's like it is REV limiting, but at 3300 RPM.
    What gives??? It feels like it's an electrical issue or a sensor or something, but where to look next??? Which sensor? Could it be the wire harness?

    Did you really feel the need to post two different threads? What's the purpose in having the MSD ignition? The stock ignition is good till like 600hp.

    An Automatic ECU will do that.

    What ECU are you using? Also, is the CEL on?

    I never could figure why people feel the need for an aftermarket ignition.:whocares:



    anyway, did the motor rev good before your super power ignition "fried stuff"?

    Or is this major malfunction right after your swap?
