O2 meter is a must on a turbo car.
It's easy... one wire to +12, one ground and one spliced into O2 signal.
That's all. I have Autometer on my '85 and am very happy with it.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [urq] Into the CIS abyss
Last night I ventured into the black abyss of CIS experimentation. I know
some that's a 4 letter word, but have mercy.
Since I acquired my WXd 83 URQ (and 2 motors since) it has not been
consistant or impressive at full throttle. Ever!
So- I pulled 2 fuel distributors from the local boneyard. The plan was to
have 1 to experiment with, one stock with which to return to the
original spec, and my original.
I put one on the car last night and adjusted the allen screws under the
next to the fuel lines out (counterclockwise- rich) 45 degrees each.
The preliminary results are YEEHAAAAAAAAAA! Full throttle as it was
to be. All the way to redline, and not just in 3rd gear. I will now check
the plugs routinely for indications of rich/lean etc. The frequency valve
dials right in, so I don't feel I have gone over the edge with mixture.
Maybe I should put together a fuel ratio meter? Anyone who has done that
could talk a non electric dummy through the process would be greatly
More real life driving impressions to follow, but so far it is an amazing
