If that car sat ten years you should have major injection work ahead of you.

I would remove the injectors and have them cleaned, tested, or atleast check their spray pattern coming from the fuel distributor.

Also check to make sure the plunger is not stuck in the fuel distributor. You can tell by pushing down on the air flow sensor plate w/ fuel pumps running. Be careful, you'll flood the motor quite easily. But it should require force to push the plate down with pumps running. And you should hear the injectors squeeling when you do. If the plate return up w/ pressure than the piston is not stuck and you may be OK in the fuel dist. area. Although later once the injectors qre deemed ok, I would do a volume test on all the injectors hooked to the dist to make sure there are no blockages in the fuel dist.

It would be wise to get a CIS fuel pressure gauge and verify system and control pressures befoe running engine hard. In case the "italian tune-up" comes to mind which is what many people think will fix cars that have been sitting up. Trouble is, this could prove dangerous in a CIS 930.

Sounds great, good luck and welcome
