    sounds more like the ignition driver itself

    Sits atop the airbox.

    The ECU cant "see" the coils, so for it to notice a problem it must be the driver i recon.

    there are two modules there, one for each bank, swap them over and see if the fault moves. That should help eliminate the ICM
