oh ya! forgot my most annoying issue i have so far. well, really its a tie between this and the oil leak, but whatever...
about 2 weeks after i got the car, it popped up with a CeL 301 and 302. i checked the plugs, wires and coil, all were bad. the cables were way over spec for resistance, as was the coil. replaced them all, and did the MSD upgrade at the same time. the car runs smoov as buttah, but it still pops the codes when i get up over 65 and start to cruise. i cant explain it or figure out what the next step should be. i dont even get a stutter when the codes start blinking, the thing runs better than my moms new SUV. any ideas for where i should look next?
