Hey there keep in mind almost all wires are charged on this system, they get grounded by ECM then they complete the circuit, so if you forgot or there is a rpm, distributor ,alarm, knock sensor wire hangin against the block it will spark.
Look for a unconnected wire from the hvac system or something.
