I just installed an MSD ignition system (DIS 2, coil, wires and Tach adapter). Problem is, a friend did the first wiring job, and he wired all the same color wires together. Needless to say, the car didn't start. So today I re-wired it, as per the schematics, and it still wont start. Did he fry my system or my ecu or what? I didn't see any smoke being let out....

I live in Germany. I really enjoy driving as fast as I can on the Autobahn. I'm tired of being stuck at 120, with a not so fast acceleration. So, in answer to you question: I'm at the beginning of my Neon upgrade. Intake and exhaust are the first stage, and ignition and PCU are second, and maybe third, if still required, inner engine. So, do I need to buy a new ECU before I was planning on it, or is there a quick fix I am overlooking?
Yeah, everything works. The engine cranks over and everything. I just don't think I'm getting a spark. I have the DIS 2 unplugged, with the by-pass plug in the line. I know it works though. Everything went pear shaped when my buddy wired in the Tach Adapter wrong. I'm worried that the Tach Adapter is fine, and that something else (more expensive and NOT covered in a brand new replacement warranty) is fried.
Got over my panic attack today and started thinking again. Unplugged the 'new' wiring and plugged in the factory wires. Started up just fine. Tomorrow the auto sparky in my shop is going to go over it with his multi-meter and do the wires up nice and professional like. I hope its just a bad connection. Got a response from the MSD Tech line- among other things he says "Sadly, if the factory wiring works fine there is no point in wiring the MSD system back in." WTF? Am I missing something here?
