It is a all silver 2001 with race stickers. I changed the harness, We think it is the brain box. I took it to the shop last night and we checked everything. We have power and signal going to the computer but no signal but weak signal goung to the converter, there for no signal to the coils. If you have a spare brain box or converter that helps at least just to check it. Any one help, I am trying to get it together for the track.

Under dog thumper sounds promissing, I have satos high mounts so it should make alot of noise.

That sucks you are still trying to figure that thing out. Hopefully it will work this time. As far as a name, no clue.

this is a stretch but how about "the hilton sisters" not exactly, but close to high maintenance twins. (insert rimshot here)

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

I saw on another BBS that a guy was having the same problem, when they switched his ecu it fixed it. So maybe try starting there.
