Keep your head up bro, I've had the same problem for the last month and a half. everything has been replaced. Dont know if i missed it somewhere in the thread, but you might try testing your throttle position sensor. Believe theres a write up on this in tech info.

There is joy in Mudville tonight. As I stated in my last post, it seems the brand new ignition module was defective. When the module goes, there are NO codes, real time scanning shows NOTHING when the engine was cutting out, no pending codes, nothing. The Ignition Module seems to work in stealth mode.

After this, I would recommend keeping a known good one around, takes a couple minutes to change, and when you get a defective one, it can take you on quite the diagnostic journey.
