Maybe you have some thing screwed up with the wiring
Between the pertronix module and the coil. That could cause some bad juju

1984 90 Tdi- "Yamelo"
1988 RRC- "Chewbacca"
1987 RRC- "Chewy 2"

Ok. Crazy development. I replaced the new kick ass Pertronix dizzy with the old beat to shit 1992 dizzy and the car runs perfect now! This is telling me that the wiring is fine. I also replaced the spark plug wires, plugs look ok for now but will be replaced in the near future. I contacted KMJ Performance to ask for a refund on Friday but have not heard from them yet...
