Although this is worth considering, I'm still suspecting fuel issues. Need to
figure out fuel pump output tests without VAG-COM (mine's not here).
Either that or jumpering the pump to see if it works. One thing at a time,
first fuel, then air, finally spark (how do you safely test spark with a POS
coil-less car anyway?).
