Gotcha. Glad you were able to figure it out and get it running. I agree that it's odd that you can have a bad sensor (camshaft position sensor) and the car runs poorly, but you can disconnect that very same sensor, and the car runs fine. I gues the quesiton is, how would it have run on the road without the sensor connected. I wouldn't try it though.
Anyway, glad you got it fixed and thanks for sharing the cause.
P.S.: What is the resistance on the new camshaft position sensor? Maybe that can give us all a baseline to work off of since Bentley left it out.
