VZ Calais Impounded?
Try replacing the Coil packs on the DFI Module.
you could always replace 1 at a time and find the dodgy one. or replace all 3 at the same time would be recommended
the wreckers should have these

Go and buy yourself a LS1 coil on plug setup bolt it on and i'll give you some wiring to do... expect to see a 2kw power gain... :p

Personally i'd be investing some coin into a new 02 sensor after you've tried the coil pack and leads maby switch your MAF sensor ... then pull your inlet apart give everything a hit with some carby cleaner !

But if you do change either the 02 or MAF sensor be sure to disconnect your battery for a good 15 mins, then take your car out and give it a hiding !

MSD coils are the same price and sometimes cheaper than brand new standard coils, go figure. About the $220 - $250 mark.

Why would you need to disconnect the battery?
