Here's my problem. My '94 Z28 sat for about 7 months. Friday, 2 days ago I finally put it back on the road. I charged the battery and it fired right up. Ran great. I drove it about 20 miles to a friend's home and shut it off. I restarted it to test the battery. And it fired right up. An hour later, it wouldn't start. It turns over but won't start. I'm not getting a spark. No spark from the coil and obviously none to the spark plugs. I changed the coil and ignition module with no luck. Please keep in mind it ran great before I turned it off....

Trouble with buying a cheap opti is- you have a 50-50 chance of getting a bad one out of the box. So you put the bad new opti on, it doesn't solve your problem. Next you start changing other parts and still no spark.

So do yourself a favor and buy a GM, Delphi, or MSD opti. Chances are high that it will work correctly.

But before you buy any opti, run the tests shoebox recommended, to see if opti, coil, icm, or wiring is bad.

Update... A friend of mine thought she was doing me a favor by having one of her friends replace the opti on my car. I found out when he was half way through. So I let him finish, what a mistake. Anyways, I have a rough idle, that clears up once I give it a little gas. But once I rev it up it pings like the timing is off. When I'm driving, if I put my foot in it, it stalls out and takes forever to restart. Is it possible to put it on wrong where it will still run but run like the timing is off? Has no power either. I'm about to take it all apart but wanted an opinion
