Great info!

Not an expert but I think the single connection pot's on some of the euro cars did not seem to have retard from what I could glean so far. All the dual vac connection pots did have boost retard.

It just seems that a turbo has to have boost retard so I still have some questions on this. However, I would be able to work with either one.

Many believe the euro injection might be an improvement over the late US stuff but I am not sure that is the case. IThe fuel lines do look thicker on the euro but the Lambda US injection with a couple of tricks I believe can deliver more fuel than the non lambda euro systems, contrary to past beliefs. However, it dose not contribuite anything to power in stock tune.

Still seems most the significant difference relating to stock performance seems the exhaust.

To me it just comes down to condition, History, options (non sunroof, LTD slip, sport seats) and tune more than model.

Just what I believe so far.
