    Loved reading this thread....

    As for coil packs on a 2001!!! They will be doing very well if they are originals...Try cylinders 2 and 3 first or do some data logging if you have the ability.

    PM if i can help at all

    Just make sure theres no boost leak as the same thing happened to mine and it was a loose hose connection to the intercooler which came loose. good luck s90gav:uhm:
