Emissions are tested at idle.

No, thats where Renault put it.

Nonsense - there are actually spacers on the oil pickup making the pan
approx 1" deeper than the Renault ones.

> - Much richer fuel mixture (2% CO2)

No, the E was set up to 1.5% WE set up to 2% sometimes when the engine
"likes" it. This is within tolerance. 2% co at idle does not constiture
a "much richer" mixture. The mixture adjustment screw has very little
effect higher in the rev range.

And you never stopped to wonder WHY there are these differences. Believe
me they didn't do it for the hell of it. Vacuum enrichment on the 038 is
very slight - something like 0.2bar drop in control pressure - not even
enough to read on a gas analyser at idle! The 066 drops control pressure
by over 1 bar, and makes a big difference.

Only on later ones.

That was a warrenty item, not on all engines.

That is actually there on the DeLorean engine, but the upper casting was
not drilled out during assembly meangn you have to drill it out. The
Volvos also have this screw

That's because it didn't use the idlespeed system!!!
