Have you checked the timing plus is it running g a vacuum advance & retard on the dizzy if they are ok a rolling road is your best bet. Also check for air leaks on your inlet manifolds
The advance/retard is handled by the ECU on these, to check the timing you have to plug into the ECU using VAG-COM or VCDS software and put the ECU into basic settings,whilst holding the revs at exactly 1500 rpm and shining a timing light onto the crankshaft pulley at the same time, now if after that you have to adjust the timing then thats when your other 3 hands come into play.

Easy peasy really.
