I had a similar problem but maybe a bit different, but this is what I learned.

I had an intermittant start problem. Sometimes it started then sometimes it did not.

Mine was the speed relay that is only on the 87 through 89 930s. This is the yellow relay in the back that allows the ignition to function for 3 to 5 seconds after the car is shut down to burn off the fuel. My would stick so that there was no ignition signal at times during start up.

I also had the permatune cdi. These do not whine like the bosch oem so dont expect to hear anything. This may sound simple, but if your car is not starting and you smell fuel, pull the wire from the coil and see if you are getting spark. If not you can trace it back to ignition and not fuel. You can also remove the cdi and do your own diagnostic to see if it is with in spec. (this is on the permatune web site)
