Default MAP sensor DEAD!, neutral Safety Switch DEAD, 1st recorded map kill?

MY00 RS. 36,800 5MT

my neutral safety swtich is dead, causing a bad idle, no biggie covered under warranty, (on order)

but the other day at idle, my car overheated, then shortly after MR CEL came on, and it started idling like crap, stalling and blowing black smoke.

pulled the code, its was Map sensor ckt high input I think, forgot to right it down.

car idles like crap, running extremely rich, doesnt drive bad, but not running good. Classic bad map sensor symptoms.

Its either my MAP sensor or my SAFC took a dump. I know it cant bee a wireing problem for my safc cause all the conecctions are soddered, though I will check them neway.

the thing that gets me is the pressure reading from my SAFC is good, its constant and doesnt fluctuate when the car runs bad.

anyone else have a map die on them.

im supposed to have the car dynod and the safc tuned this saturday too, I gotta get it fixe.
