Hey there Cary,
I had the same problem with my 1.7. I changed the TPS. It helped a little but not completely. Then I did the CHT. Again, it helped a little but...
I pulled the dizzy, cleaned & checked the FI points... then noticed a slight wobble in the dizzy shaft. Put it back in and sometimes it ran strong & sometimes it got the sputter back.
I still had the points & condensor set up so I went to the Pertronics electronic ignition. That seemed to take care of the sputtering at 3k. It may have been just the points but it also could'a been a combo of changing it all.

ps. I have your tape of the autocross. Can I send it to the Main St. address?
Sit'n here
Hav'n a beer.
