yes you just ignore the 16v specific stuff. for idle and co this is done the same way at idle with breather off and inlet plugged, but no red/black spade to unplug. ignition timing is the same except you have to disconnect and plug the vac line to the dizzy.

all the basic kjet stuff still applies :)

Thanks, I'll run through it all tomorrow. Hopefully the timing light I ordered will arrive today. I've got some other issues I'll post them up elsewhere, not sure how relevant they are to this and don't want to clog up your fab guide. :thumbs:
