Ok, now Im confused. My 90Q 20V does NOT stall when oil filler cap is
opened. But my friends 4kq, and 90Q 10V do, as does my Ur-Q, so the
common denominator here is the 10V engines do. I asked someone else here
with a 20V if theirs stalls....it does not. Anyone else have a 20V
(atmospheric) that does or does not stall?!?!?
