Been having a few little problems since i did a BBM conversion on my EB wagon converted it all the same as i did on my ED xr6 but now and then while cruising it seems like its dies (like someone turned the key off or its over fueled but after a few seconds seems to go away and is really noticeable at about 60kph any ideas what it could be ive done a diag check and no faults found pumps good etc Im little confused

Things i have checked are fuel pump/reco injectors/new intake bbm & head gaskets, fuel filter, airfilter, O2 sensor

Just cant seem to get the thing right?

Check your distributor as well as the TFI module. The module might be on it's way out and cutting in and out. Happened to my EL, every now and then it would cut out and sometimes when under load, it will cut in and out randomly.

Ignition leads?? check at night and check for crossfire between leads....

If your TFI module was playing up, then you would be losing spark. So while cruising at 60 the tacho would drop to zero for a second or two then come back up to normal again.

Tacho doesnt move while driving nothing odd. it will be great and all of a sudden it feels dead on power but it will go back no normal and go like a scalded cat ???? anyone suggest what it could be i have a tfi on its way but thinking what else it could be untill it turns up?

any chance my ECU is faulty due to the fault code 512? ive replaced the ECU with another 6TBB and 6DBB and same thing with and without chip any chance this could be causing my car to loose power at cruise (minimum throttle ie @ 60Kph cruising) ????als does it @ 80kph too but over 100kph you dont notice it (may just be from the momentum keeping it rolling at that speed?
