      The 020 manuals aren't that much better from a reliability standpoint, I've seen both fail in stock ABA cars, and I've seen both reach the 200k mile mark. However, you're kinda stuck for performance...

      These problems all sound relatively minor to me. The parts you're talking about are cheap. It's so much easier, cheaper, and faster to repair it vs replacing the entire engine (then still having to...

      ECU will not supply spark without an RPM signal.

      Verify crankshaft sensor wiring, if good, replace crankshaft sensor.

      It would help if we knew what year and engine code the car in question is.

      Any fault codes? Does the ecu have an rpm signal while cranking (check with a capable scan tool)?

      Starting and dying without your foot on the pedal...

      Starting and dying without your foot on the pedal is because throttle ADP has not been done.

      P0341 is probably due to incorrect timing. Close enough to run, but not perfect.

      No, not 180 out. Probably more like a tooth off.

      Yes the throttle ADP on cable throttle cars is an idle adaptation, it won't idle on its own until that's performed.

      Test the battery properly, with a load tester. If it checks out, voltage drop test across the wire from the battery to starter, and between starter body and battery negative.

      What are your fuel trims? What are your MAF readings at idle and max achieved during a WOT blast to redline? Have you performed throttle ADP with VCDS?

      Also, I completely agree with Prof315. ...

      Yes incorrect timing can definitely cause P0341. It indicates improper crankshaft/distributor relation, despite the code description. There is no sensor directly on the camshaft.
