Someone may have asked this - but is there any chance you have reversed 
the connectors for the timing reference and speed sense sensors? That 
may explain the tach bounce - it is getting about 300 more pulses per 
revolution than it expects.

If I remember correctly, you drove the car for a while and then it 
stalled so this would have happened after the initial problem.
