+1 on "bad coil". I'm told the Bosch CDI boxes tend to either work or not.

I just had a "hard" 6,000 RPM misfire on the dyno - when poking around, noticed black stuff puking out of the coil.

Thinking back, it may have been doing it for a while and I just thought it was the rev limiter and not noticed it was too low...
'77 S with '78 930 power and a few other things.
