You'll need to remove the allen wrench and rev the engine lightly every so often to make sure the flow plate is where the engine wants it to be.

Maybe half a turn to a turn richen than when it stutters from being to lean.

well its better to run rich than lean. I'm not familiar with VW, or older ones for that matter, but is there a knock sensor? Are the injectors all 100%? fuel maps off?

just throwin some ideas out there.
