Hello, yourself!

I read what you are running ignition-wise.  Before you take ANY
expensive replace-it steps (like buying a new ISV, or replacing your
CPS, or any other shennanigans), take the 034 stuff off, and put your
stock stuff on.  Even if you've got a weak coil or POS.  Test it out,
then report back.

I have a hunch.
