Hi folks,

I've got the old uneven revs problem on my 318iS ('93). I have taken off and cleaned the ICV. No joy.
Now before i start buying bits to eliminate them (o2 sensor, mass meter etc) i want to eliminate the ICV.
I can't find one in a scrappy at all and just wondered if there is anything i could use as an alternative to see if it makes a difference before i go buy a new one.

The scrappy up the road has a number of audi 80's (including a 2.2 quattro), some golfs some passats, a rover coupe and (he tells me) a six cylinder (at this stage i can only assume its the 320 but i'm not sure).

Can i grab anything from any of those to test with. There is also a cavalier (vectra) in there also somewhere.

OR is there another more common vehicle i could try and get one from.

I really want to get this sorted as the engine is running sweet as a nut apart from this as i've just had it serviced and the cylinder head done as well. (so don't want to splash out on a new ICV if it's not going to fix the problem).
