Well, first off, she's been running great since I got back from my deployment. Ran great all day today as well. I go out and put the key in, and turn it to the run position. Every dummy light, as well as the up shift light on the cluster (which I've never even seen come on before) were lit up. I start the car, and it dies almost immediatly. So now the car is flooded. My mistake, from putting the fuse box lid on backwards last time, so I don't pull out the egi fuse. Well, I unhook the neg. terminal and let it sit while my wife gets me and we go work out. I come back, rehook the battery, unflood it, and she starts right up, though with a lot of smoke. So my question is, did my computer just decide to be stupid for awhile, or might there be something else that I should check?

na its a rotary trait, no harm no foul no problem with the computer, just an issue with cold starts and too much fuel and there really isnt a sure tell fix.

Those of us with S5's have a little bit easier time, the pedal all the way to the floor on start-up cuts the fuel.
