Hey, wait a minute ... doesn't the 90 have a Motronic setup that takes its
ignition timing reference from a pin on the flywheel and not from the cam?
If so, that would explain why this thing seems to work great on some 5-cyl
cars but not at all on others, including (I suspect) my '87 5k. I guess I
will have to borrow mine back from a friend (I bought it way back when for
$350 and used it for a while on my '85 4k before I started autocrossing it
in HS) and see for myself! Mind you, I'm not holding my breath...
