Sorry, towards 0%.

Well, that was my understanding.  However, as I enrich the mixture the rpm
will rise.  If the CIS truly compensates completely then nothing should
change, other than the duty cycle. Or am all wet here as well.  BTW, when I
adjust the mixture I'm turning it only in 1/8 to 1/4 turns.

Yes, that is what happened.

Sorry again, 100%

I had checked the timing and it was spot on.  I will check the ground wire.
>From a discussion with Orin offline earlier he suggested that the high NOX
may just be from a bad cat and not from running lean.  I checked the plugs
this afternoon and discovered that they are covered in black soot suggesting
that the car is actually running overly rich.  Orin may be right.  Plus
they're the dreaded Bosch platinums. I know, I know. Wrong plugs.  Can't
recall why I used them as I don't like them.  I guess I just had them lying
around and that was convenient at the time.

I'll spray some starting fluid around the injectors and see if there are any
air leaks.
