    Well, so far so good! Eldo starts right up every time and -- so far -- no dying-at-idle problems. Everything seems to be just fine. So for now I think I'm back to trouble-free Cadillac motoring fun. Thanks again for all the input.

    Eldo, what MSD part did you have? Was it the multiple spark box like the 6A, or just an in-cap blaster coil?
