PS have also replaced, map sensor, TPS, idle controll valve(faulty), injectors(buggered), temp sensors (all 3), checked earth resistance and wired new earth lead to compare - no difference. Fuel pressure is as per manual at idle, and 2000rpm -sprung a leak at 3000 but still looked good, fuel was spraying over the motor by then so no test at 4000rpm and above.
Ant testing of the Ignition Control module? Make sure the base of the distributor is clean and making GREAT electrical contact to the block- that's where it gets its ground reference, not any of the black wires. Also, make sure the IC module is grounded to the distributor body. In addition, make sure the spring clip on the rotor is making good contact with the center electrode.
Did you write that you verified base timing at 10°BTDC in Diagnostic Mode?
