I was driving on the highway this evening when all of a sudden my R lost throttle response. The engine basically turned off. While on the shoulder, I found that the car would start up and rev for a few seconds (I couldn't rev it above 4k), but then the engine shuts off! This happened each and every time I tried to restart it.

Now, I've since had it towed to a garage, and tomorrow the garage will hopefully find the root of the problem. In the meantime, I was wondering if anyone had an idea as to what may have caused the latter.

Wasn't the fuel pump like a few others and I suspected. In fact, the piping that goes into the intake manifold blew off. Somehow or another the clamp came loose, and the boost pressure blew the piping off. Not sure if this was a factory piping/clamp problem or a problem stemming from the FMIC. I will report back on Monday.
