You should not be running a Euro spec DME in a US spec car. The Euro spec cars have a higher compression ratio, do not have a CAT, do not have an O2 sensor, and run at a lower fuel/air ration (richer).

Running the Euro spec DME will waste fuel, trash you O2 sensor, and ultimately clog the CAT.

If you want to run a different DME, try installing a late model (85.5 to '87) DME and AFM. You need to change both parts because the late model DME uses a 5 volt reference, and the early DME uses 8 volts. This is a "plug and play" swap. No need to chagne the DME harness.
