      If you remove the hot start pulse relay, you'll probably never miss it. Earlier cars had none.

      If the car is kept properly tuned, you can do away with one of the idle boost valves.

      Neither my '79 not '92 got relayed starter solenoids or headlights even though I knew better. I paid the price in ignition switch replacements on both cars.

      Actually, some few do.
      Admittedly, the percentages are quite small. In a shop environment, maybe one 020 gets relayed for every ten 010s, and there are a lot more 020s than 010s.

      Still,...

      Injector thread pitch on CIS basic and lambda is the same. Differences are grooves for circlips that better retain the large seals and the presence or absence of air shroud seal 'hats'.

      That could work if you were assured that the leakage occurred on a cylinder with an open intake valve, otherwise fuel will puddle on top of a closed valve.
      I'm also inclined to think it's less of a...

      Could be a short.
