Clean the idle air stabiliser or try a new one.
Pure, unadulterated knowledge of OBD1 VR corrados?? The car will hesitate when making turns, going up hills, even when i use my blinkers. Super fcuken irks. Checked the ohm on the maf sensor, temp coolant sensor, and throttle poaition sensor (i think) and all numbers were good. Changed the cap n rotor, along with the plugs and wires with correct gap on plugs and the resistance on the battery to terminal is good.. Pls HALP!
do some diagnosis instead of throwing parts at it

If there were exposed wires under the dash, you could have a number of electrical gremlins lurking. Start with a bentley and follow the wires that have been molested. See if any of those are feeding into the ignition system (if it was an aftermarket alarm, or stereo, this is often the case).
The ignition switch itself is a super cheap part... on the order of $15-25. You don't have to install it to test it; you can just unplug the ignition switch harness from the existing ignition switch and plug it into the new one. You can still use your key to unlock the steering, but use a small blade screwdriver to start with the new switch. Drive it, and see if that eliminates the problem.
If that by some miracle does fix your problem, install the switch. Don't keep using the screwdriver to start the car, as it will just ruin your new switch. It's a bit of a pain in the ass, but you can unbolt at the knuckle by the pedal cluster and slide the column through the sleeve. You'll have to disconnect the wiring on the back of your wiper stalks. You may have two headless bolts to remove and a hex bolt through the sleeve (it's been a while since I've destroyed a Corrado).
Then you need to locate the drill point on the column around the ignition cylinder (shown in the bentley), drill it, and release the tension pin holding the cylinder in the column. Screw new switch to existing ignition tumbler. Reinstall. Use 13mm bolts (the same thread pattern as the bolts in the pedal cluster) in place of the stupid ****ing headless bolts.
Drive it until something else breaks. It's a Corrado.

Dude,that job is such aa f-ing hassle. You have to have a bent 90 degree small philips and you can avoid doing most of the time consuming stuff. If it is your ignition switch it will act funny when you wiggle the key. I am thinking you may have a bad ground somewhere or a coil that is crapping out. You have distributor yes? YOu may also have a bad hall sensor in the distributor.
I don't want anything to do with Corrados,but you an bring that POS by my shop and I will scan it for you, you fakah.
