    Can you tell us what type of modification has been done to the engine, and how many miles it has on it? When you say it cracks (cranks?) over, do you mean that it tries to start or the starter just turns over. I would also like to know how old the battery is and when was the last time the spark plugs were changed.

    I had the same problem on a 93 would die and then after cooling down would run fine. First I changed the coil, and that didnt help so then changed the ignition module, and
    boda bing started running great. hope this might help. Glider and Chopper walked me through the problem. and I am sure the mods will get you back running again.

    Are you really sure about that... I would take a second look.
