Didn't think there was any connection there.
good luck getting it running.
hey ex LA guy,

well we both are speculating that the belt broke (i was downshifting and speeding up to 90 mph when the belt went) with such force that it totally cracked the supressor housing cover, and then whipped down on plug "1", which was where the spark was coming out therefore making my car idle and surge forward...and i had to drive it home (slowly) with only 5 cylinders going....
