im going to try another that I have from a 914 2L which is the closest match
to this anyway, I think the one I was using was from a 1.7, we'll see if
there is any difference.

Sounds like with larger displacement you need more idle enhancement. You 
could try putting 2 of our AARs in parallel, or see if you can find
similar from a larger engine to substitute for yours. Try something from 
Volvo, Saab, or BMW.

BTW, the Type 4 and Type 3 electrically heated AARs have different 
orientations for the I/O ports, but the bodies are the same, so they look
they are probably alike inside. There's no adjustment; it's just a matter of

how big the passages are inside. They should both go from fully open to
closed, although fully closed is never perfect, and it's always possible
yours is sticking and is not fully opening.  

It's common for these to stick, so that might be a good place for you to
looking. It's difficult to take these apart, and even harder to put them
together. Try soaking in a mixture of acetone and ATF.
