They are all timed the same way, but timing is different  between n/a and TD 
TD probably 1mm, n/a 1.6 may be 0.88 1.5 could be the sameish, or with 
certain pump it may be over 1mm 'yellow dot' pump or something.

Do you live in an area that suffers from algae in the fuel? Lucky for me we 
get no algae and no water!
Did you let the Jetta run till warm before retarding the advance lever?

Anyway put your other toys down and get back to the Quantum ;o)
