I'm not sure that a bad fuel pump would cause a high idle rate, but I'll have to take a good look at the FSMs when I get home tonite (if someone else hasn't helped you by then)
It'* true that the Bosch plugs don't seem to work very well in our cars, but it'* hard to imagine that they would cause that much trouble off the bat, new. For future reference, or if you decide to replace them, here'* what has been proven to work well:

For Plugs:
NGK or AC Delco

and Wires:
AC Delco and Belden Premiums from NAPA are good choices

To test your coils:
Ignition Coil Troubleshooting

BTW, is this all on the same tank of gas (since you brought it up)? Have you tried a bottle of dry gas?

If kicking the car worked..try it again. I'm not convinced the ground issue is fixed.

drove it to the gas station. added a bottle of dry gas and filled it up. drove around for 15 minutes and went home. next morning it didn't start at all.

correction: secondary coil readings are ~9kohm. And I can't test the primary because my meter only measures in kohms, doh! wish i could find my digital meter.

the fuel pump part of the ground issue is definitely fixed because i hear it prime every time i start the car.

as a quick note, the delco'* are NGK'*, so just go for whichever can be found cheaper...

I tried the coils from the 93. Still didn't start.

Then this morning I pumped the throttle from inside the engine a few times - the first time it was kind of sticky. Tthen it did start up, but ran kind of rough. I'm going to try putting the original coils back.

The coils shouldn't make a difference as long as they work.

The ICM could be a factor...however. Let'* go back a little
You have/had water issues and scraped the ground plate on the concrete. This helped your problem. You put the bosch +4 plugs in..we know the cars seem to eat these like bubble gum.

Let'* concentrate on what has worked well. Pull that ground plate out. Clean it and all connections properly and lightly dielectric them all. Make sure there'* no fresh water in the car. Pull the plugs and see how the look.

Good idea Bill. Otherwise we're just chasing ghosts and wasting your time, sbattert.
