title suggestion : flat spot issues! please help!

As for your problem.. does it sound like your rev limiter, or sort of like a truck stopping using compression braking?


Cheers

not the ECU.. firstly check your relay!!
don't know where yours is, but it's the ignition relay.

Also, your coil is a suspect, and so are your leads, spark plugs, and distributor cap/rotor button.

Leave the coil for now, and when were the last time you replaced the above?

Also if you have a mate with a falcon, snatch his coil temporarily, and stick it on yours (piss easy job), and go for a drive.


Cheers
