Do we have fuel pressure and i injector pulse? Injector pulse may be a little more difficult to check sijnxe it is a supercharger engine. If we just lost spark this could be the ignition coil relay or possibly the ECM. We would firstg need to make sure we have power and ground to the ignition coils. Let me know.

The ignition coil relay is located in the passenger rear of the engine compartment under the enclosure.
