It did end up being the Optispark. I just got the car back last night with the new Opti and it runs great. Back to normal.
But now it is leaking oil at the front of the engine. haven't crawled under yet but it is leaving a small spot/puddle when it is parked after driving it.
the most likely reason for the leak is the WP drive seal. If it was replaced, and always should be on opti swap, it WILL leak if installed wrong. Everything needs to come off again to replace it and a form of "tool" is needed to install it correctly

Search shows several homemade tool versions (Sharpie pen cap) or you can buy the tool for $20 on ebay. 99% of any shops don't have this tool or even know wtf about this $5 seal
