Ummm... dumb idea, but is the PCM grounded well? Does the PCM do anything properly?

I only ask because a high energy system I installed once wouldn't work without a very manly sized ground strap attached.

Also, because of the odd-fire V10, the cam or crank position sensor has to get one whole crank revolution before it knows where TDC is. Just another tidbit that I hope adds to the know-how to fix this.

I think the ground is fine on the PCM. I checked all the connectors and wires in that area too... That makes sense about one revolution on the crank. Thanks for that heads up too...
