Mine was a simple parameter that absolutely would not stay set in the EFI ignition control.Engine would not hit a lick. Only took 8 hours to get the fix but fixed it is. I followed all of the MSD trouble shooting and everything indicated a dead MSD control box with absolutely no spark but for some reason ,not the least of which was having Jegs send next day Saturday delivery($$$$) a new MSD box , I just had a hunch it HAD to be in the EFI so I put the other FAST EFI ECU on it and still nothing. WTF was going on?????  There is a setting in the ECU that I found and it would allow changing and uploading the changes but as soon as you did the setting would revert back to the previous setting that would not allow it to start on restart after making tune changes. Oh well,just another learning curve. Glad I made it around it.Thought it was going to spoil some of the fun.  :m :m  I'm going to sleep better by far tonight!!!!

Hope Doug and Carl get their woes corrected in time !!!!

There is a setting for IPU or Discrete depending on whether you are using a flying magnet crank trigger(msd) or a magnetic pickup(FAST) crank trigger. It is in the setup parameters and is not accessed except for initial setup of the EFI. It is never accessed for tuning. For some reason it had somehow gotten changed in the copy of the original setup file that I loaded into the ECU to try a modified tune and I was stuck hunting for the issue for the next 8 hours. Everything I did diagnosis wise pointed directly at a failed MSD box. I bypassed all of the EFI controls and still had no spark.  Correct the crank trigger parameter and viola! I have spark.This still baffles me how that can be but it is what it is.
