First off, does your exhaust seem sooty? If so, I'd look to either:
1) Frayed, burnt insulator wire for the O2 signal wire
2) Coolant sensor at back of pass cyl head (next to distributor)
Just my opinion -- and maybe a bit of experience ;-)

I have been trying to send this message to the list and so far my
attempts have been unsuccessful. Would you please help? Thank you.
Subject: Failed Emissions Miserably 1990 V8 Quattro Auto
So, if I were as rich as my car is running right now I wouldn't be
having this problem...I failed all aspects of the emissions test, all of
them. Results are:
220 687 (2500+-300)
220 1208 (Idle 775+-425)
What's really bugging me is that I replaced the 02 sensor over a year
ago (passed then with no problems). I also replaced the Fuel Pressure
Regulator about 4-5 months ago. What else could be affecting this?
Right now I am assuming that I have a prematurely failing 02 sensor.
What else should I look at? The only other recent work I have done is
PS hoses and fixing most of the problems with my instrument cluster. I
have 10 days to fix the problem so any immediate ideas are greatly
