I think we have found the problem. I found 2 grounds that weren't tight and the negative cable at the battery was about to fall out of the clamp. I know, I should have found that earlier, but the battery has been relocated to the smugglers box. The MSD box was crapping out and not firing when hot. Replaced the box, put in new plugs and fixed the grounds and all seems good now. Will replace the battery cable when I get a chance.
Thanks for the help.

Da bad cable and grounds may have been causing "MSD crapping out" when hot.
