Car Particulars: Currently at 91K miles, was chipped with Stage III+ at 80K miles - with Samco and all new coolant and breather type hoses. Pulled codes before and after chip - none present. Here are symptoms:
Prior experience: Started after ignition key turn and 2 cycles max.
Now - Sometimes: Turn ignition key, cranks fine, "starts" after 2 cycles, release key, then dies immediately. Turn key again, cranks fine, starts after about 2 cycles.
Now - Rest of Time: Turn ignition key, cranks fine, won't start even after about 12 cycles. Release key, turn it again, cranks fine, starts after about 2 cycles.
Have checked battery and charging system - all SAT. Have replaced the distro cap and rotor (yes, narrow one). Any suggestions on what should be next?
