When checking spark with a tester that I purchased after making the mistake of checking coil by shorting to a screwdriver,I have a spark about 1/2 inch long but it isn't a real hot blue spark but kind of pink looking.I am wondering if I have messed up the control module.
Any help would be appreciated.

What are the symptoms of a bad igniter?Is it likely to cause spark timing issues?
By the way ,I really appreciate the access to a whole lot of supportive Subaru fans.

If you haven't seen these already, they might be useful:
I am experiencing a problem with a 2.5 engine that will not start. [...]
An exact sequence of what you checked/replaced relative to when the no-start problem began might help with diagnosis.
Do you have spark on cylinders 1 & 2 and 3 & 4? A hot spark requires things be right on the primary side; is the battery in good shape, are connections clean? How's the cranking speed?
You mentioned compression and spark; assuming air is getting there, is fuel?
