    Stage 3 gtx cuts off during operation

    I was finishing up a race with my gtx when at around 5-6k rpms the engine shut off , it made no weird noises prior to shutting just cut out suddenly. I checked the fuses and they were all good. When i try to start it the starter just spins the engine and nothing happens as if there were no spark. I removed the spark pugs and cleaned them and tried it again nothing but then raw unburned gasoline was pouring out of the exhuast after that i decided that this beyond my mechanicle ability and gave up ill be taking it back to ppg. Does anyone have any idea what could have happend ? This is the first time this ski has let me down like that. Im also worried that there could have been some internal damge to the engine?

    This happened to a buddy of mine while in the gulf. He had to replace the battery. Just something to look into. --Jeremy

    Its not the battery i had it tested. The engine seems to be flooded with fuel would that be from cranking it so much? How would i get all that gas out?

    What are the chances of having an injector faill? would that cause the engine flood with gasoline?

    Sorry to hear that, man. Is it possible the injector failed without the ECU's assistance? Just thinking.

    Mabe im just furious on how a $1000 perfmance ecu could fail and them not have some warrenty or a way for me to send it to them and have it fixed for a price.
