Look into a Holly HydraMat. I haven't used it on an E30 before, but has worked well for the two Champcars I've worked on (my buddy's RX7 and my 240SX).

I used JB weld on all the press tubes on the intake and it's been holding fine. 3yrs of NA operation + 6 months (3,000 miles) on a turbo build.

BIP373 replaces the quad spark. In fact, the quad spark is just 4 BIP 373's in an enclosure w/ some resistors and stuff (basically, it might be slightly more complicated than that).

Was there still assembly lube on the parts when you took it apart again? Agree with Zaq, never fire up an engine without priming the system by manually turning over the engine at a minimum.
