my 92 GLI 16v was feeling doggish, so I had the techs check it out. They told me my computer checked out fine but that my Spark advance wasnt working, and that I would need a new computer for the fix. 1) could this be the culprit of my cars doggishness and poor gas milage? 2) I was already thinking of changing to a more advanced chip, would this fix it? Any help would be great.

An ECU could very well be causing the problems that you are having. I would obtain a known good ECU and try that to see if it alleviates your problem, then chip the good ECU.

Also check for oil under the distributor cap. 16vs tend to do that.
