... have you tried verifying the distributor timing is correct and that the
Hall sender in the distributor is OK?  The Hall sender gates the flywheel
reference signal.  Next culprit I would check is the coil driver mounted up
above the glovebox.  Have you checked the pin on the flywheel to make sure
that it is not damaged?

On my car when it would idle fine but die whenever any throttle was applied
it was due to the fact that the OXS Freq Valve wasn't being actuated ...

Possibly a bad coil or distributor cap, I've seen similar symptoms on
VW-like cars.

Has a brand spankin new coil. Dist. cap, wires and rotor on the way. Also,
Hall sender in brand new, both are dealer purchased.
