Well...I have a computer problem so I am posting from the blackberry..I lost spark on the Q4 and it turned out to be the ICM module. The unit from Q4 rods was used and upon removing the coil packs we could see it was crusty and in pretty poor shape..so I picked up a new ICM and the little Q4 fired right up. We let it idle (with occasional rev) for at least 30 minutes and it ran so much better then before. The top end quieted down as it broke in and the temp hung between 170-180 degrees at idle. We did however remove the intake and blower to install fuel injectors and a rail system to lock them in place. We will reinstall the intake Monday and refire the car. The injectors just plug the holes..I wasn't happy with the original method..
I should have a lot of progress this week as we plan to push hard..
I do have a video taken with my phone..I will see if I can get it loaded? Again pc is down..phone audio may stink too? Lol..
