Well,  today I was practicing taking apart the CIS system on an Audi 
(not sure  the exact model) and I noticed that the control pressure 
regulator looks  exactly like to one on our Deloreans except for that 
the two vacuum lines  are on the same side. Would this part work on our 
Deloreans? I only ask  because I think my CPR might be dead and it 
would be a cheap way to see  for sure. The ladies that do checkout at 
pick a part call everything they  do not recognize a "sensor" $2.99. I 
have gotten some pretty nice parts  off cars for cheap because of 
this.  I know some of you may be  enraged by my asking this, I  


You didn't tell us anything about the Audi you are talking about, but there  
are many different variations on the CPR's in different applications.  The  
main things would include the actual control pressure that is maintained as well 
 as the curve it follows during engine warm up, and the way that the full  
enrichment works (the vacuum lines on the device).  Not only that but the  bi 
metallic strip may be different which would cause it to shut off at a  different 
engine temperature.  
So, even though it might hook up to everything, it is unlikely to function  
the same as the DMC one. If it did, why would it look different and have a  
different part number?  
I am sure John Hervey can elaborate more on the specific differences.
