    Id check out the fuel filter as well. Might not be a bad time to throw a bigger pump in while you are at it. I still think some data logging might shed some light on the situation.

    I wouldn't wipe out the flywheel thing either. Some soobies take them perfectly, others throw cels due to some timing issue. If its running rough though, I don't think id blame the flywheel.

    Meaning the statement to follow isn't the only way to achieve this CEL condition. Then described how an excessively light flywheel could cause this problem, with a link to a thread that describes the issue. I've read a few threads about bugeyes having that issue.

    I too agree with the statement about the fuel filter. Change it, it's a cheap part, and likely way passed due.

    Racing a neon is like fighting a girl: you can't brag about it if you win, and you don't want anyone to know if you lose.
