See previous posts for more detail. The car has had a rough idle for years now and I had done several things but eventually gave up, assuming it would get worse and thus easier to troubleshoot.

When I +Td the car it did get worse. I did swap the n/a computers back in and it essentially idles like it use to except a little more rich due to the bigger injectors.

I have pulled the charge pipe off the intercooler to essentially eliminate the turbo from the intake and this did not change anything.

PCV was vented to ground at +T but again this seemingly had no impact because the car runs as it did when the n/a ecu is installed.

Thanks for the input!

I'd really like to find a known good 016 to try. Maybe I have two bad ones that just happen to behave identically to each other.
