  • Erratic spark just off idle.

    Hi. I have a LS3 with the Atomic LSx installed. It runs well, although I do have the Spark decrease into the low teens and single digits as I pass through the 1000-1200 RPM window? The engine runs great before & after that point, the voltage & fuel press are stable. It's in performance cam setting, it’s very annoying.

    I’m also running the MSD Blaster coils. I’ve seen they recommend a coil upgrade kit on it part number 88867. Anyone have experience this? Thanks GTA

    Oh, I should add this is a cammed engine, 500 HP and 430 TQ at rear wheels in the Camaro it was taken from. So I assume 580 ish crank HP, I’m only getting 13-14 MAP reading at idle. The problem seems to persist from idle to part throttle. Any help or direction would be appreciated. ����

    Do any Holley/MSD techs frequent these forums? It’s frustrating I tried tech and was told that almost no one there knows much of anything with the Atomic stuff?�� Anyone get there Atomic LSx system to really run well? Problems?

      They do not. Can you access the timing table? If so, just change the spark table where you want. Andrew

        Andrew, hi. Yeah, I can access it. Iíve tried almost everything. It currently has 10 plus added at idle, 3 at part throttle, and 4 at WOT. I canít figure out why itís pulling spark at that low 1000-1200 RPM window, any ideas? Thanks, Sean

          I just tried my old factory wires on it. I was thinking maybe the aftermarket ones were noisy, but no, same exact problem.

          I got a update from a fellow on this forum. 1.367 itís newer than the MSD one. Available on site,
          I tried to load the defaults, but it now won't accept the one available on site, it almost seems like a programming bug. Any ideas on how I can delete the ECU and reload the older 1.3 version? Thanks.

            I swapped out the MSD coils for known good truck coils. The problem remains? Any ideas? I ordered the coil upgrade harness. ��

              I'm actually still not sure what you feel the problem is. Do these system have a knock sensor? Andrew

                No knock sensor. Send me a email address and I'll send a video to you.

                  Could a poor ground or bad sensor cause this? I've emailed Holley tech three times now with zero replies? It leaves me no choice, but to junk the entire system and buy something else. 😡🤬
