It started early last spring at VIR on the last day. It was a high speed miss. Couldn't find any thing wrong, but the battery was dieing and voltage was low. A new battery didn't fix it. Haven't driven it but a few times since for various reasons and it's gotten worse. Just got around to replacing the alternator.

Do you know where the pos lug off the alternator goes to?

Also at the quick disconnect it can be grounding ( on either side) . Worst is to have to replace the wire from the disconnect to the MSD. Any of the before mentioned wire deterioration usually starts as a intermittent problem as you described. Initially the problem starts to occur in high humidity, rain, washing car etc, if this is the cause.
