Ok, if you're running that kind of boost, then DI makes good sense. I don't have anything against it; and it undoubtedly has huge advantages over distributer ignition - when it's working properly. But it's still a pig to troubleshoot. Sadly DI modules aren't just good and bad, they can be intermittent, bad at certain revs, and a whole load of failure modes in between :-( -- Grunff
