Ok. I found the spark issue. I actually had an exhaust leak right below the ICM.
ALthough small, it was blowing a plasma cutter stream of hot exhaust gasses under the ICM. This caused the first coil to short out and the ICM to crap out. Thats why it ran fine when cold, and puked when it got hot. I installed an exhaust manifold ( header ? ) gasket and all seems well. The gasket was a real ... witch to put on. I got pictures I can post later when I figure out how. Also, I've traced this iginition system all the way through on each wire and each connector. If anyone has any questions let me know !
I also purchased a set of 1992 SSEI factory manuals .... lots of good stuff.

THANKS everyone for the replies and info. Burnouts and mods coming soon.
