930 Down - Place your bets here!

The wife woke me up early this morning and said ... Let's go for a ride in the mountains!"

15 minutes into the drive, the engine just quit.

The facts:
  • Engine at low- normal temp (~180)
  • Gas tank at 1/2
  • Speed normal at around 65-70
  • No boost involved this early in the drive
  • No engine missing, no funny noises or other indications before the failure
  • Front fuel pump still whines
  • Battery still cranks

Called SCDOT who called a flatbed for pickup and delivery to the mechanic.

I was VERY lucky this happened close to 'civilization'. Once deep in the mountains, there is no cell service and all you hear are banjos off in the holler.
This is my first 'issue' with this car since purchase. I am guessing a failed wire/connector?

Place your bets as to the cause and I will report back once I have written the check
