got an issue with my 80 which has just started,
its slow to accelerate, feels like turbo lag almost , ive checked air filter and that is fine, need some help where to start looking please

Cheers checked them , that was the issue , one of the wires running from battery to that little black box had no continuity. Replaced it with new wire and terminals and she fired .
However with me messing with the battery terminals I think something else has blown , it won't start and now I...
my son was replacing the alternator on his petrol 1993 80 series , while doing this , the positive wire came in contact with earth and a lot of sparks was produced.
now the car will not start, it turns over but will not fire, there seams to be no spark
cheers in advance for your help

I don't have another one unfortunately , I'm going to try to test the one we have .
I will check out the cable I've read this can also be an issue.
My son is away with the car until Friday, I will check these things out then
