hey guys i went to start my car yesterday and its not firing. it turns over but no go. checked spark witch seems a bit weak. its got a brand new msd ignition system. 6al and ss coil.check for fuel. got plenty coming out the rail. now i did a ecu code check and its pulling up error 21 witch is ignition signal circuit . now prior to this the car had a ems ecu installed witch to run it needed the dizzy rotor arm modified to change the phasing angle. now ive put back the rotor button to the standard position .now i believe maybe its got a problem with the power transistor witch from what ive read has something to do with the coil. what are you thoughts. i will hopefully put another dizzy in the next week or so

The transistor is probably fine but if you have a spare lying around swap it in for good measure. How's your battery charge? Yeah let us know after you throw the new dizzy in, I'm about to throw a spare on in myself to try to get mine running again lol
