Burnt injector coil (twice)

Post by darknight » Sat Oct 10, 2009 5:58 am

Has anyone run into this issue? This is a K swap stock motor running a fine tuned base map from the software.

We have had 2 injector coils burn out. Has anyone experianced this? Or at least can anyone guess what the problem is.

I've never seen this before, and have probably tuned over 100 k-swapped cars.. I would take a close look at the wiring, although the coil stuff should all be in the stock RSX engine harness..

I've seen this where the blue/white coil trigger wire was mistaken for the alternator wire. Take the coils out, plug them in, switch on the ignition, and see if any get hot - they should not.
