No, they should not be getting quite warm - there is only a small amount of wattage running through them. It would appear that you have an intermittent wiring problem somewhere, which is causing your issue. You need to do some diagnostic testing - testing battery voltage, the fuses, electrical circuits, etc. I would venture to say that, while your car is running now, your problem will show up again.

... That said I believe it was in the injector wire harness as was last time we shook it the fuses stopped blowing.
I doubt it is "fixed."
Most likely you have a bare wire somewhere in the harness and you just moved it from what it was shorting to. It could easily move back to the original position.
I wouldn't drive it any farther than I wanted to walk until you find it.
You can remove the harness and take it inside. strip it down, inspect, fix if needed and re-wrap. Hopefully you find the smoking gun. (The bare wire.)

Regarding J Benoit, I have found 3 of his ECU diagrams on the internet, one for OBD1 TBI, OBD1 MPI and OBD2. I'll upload them to a new thread - maybe it would be a good idea to make them into a sticky. Kudos to this guy, whoever he is - they are truly incredibly excellent....
