I had an oldie but goodie yesterday. Cruising down I-95 at a pretty decent clip I was playing with the new turbo. Anyway, I get off at an exit and the car dies. Won't restart. Pulled the fuel pump connector off of the metering plate and the pumps ran fine. Heard the CDI whining just fine. Looked and looked. Finally I went back to basics and started looking for vac leaks. The extra port on the inter cooler had blown off it's little cap. Found the cap buried by the rear engine mount bar. Popped it back on and car started up and ran just fine. Now the cap has a really tight hose clamp on it.
Check your hose clamps!!!
