Well, let's try to be logical about this. You said he's at full
throttle, which would be in the range of say 4.3 to 4.8 VDC. So again
let's assume that the WOT threahold is 85% value of full voltage, which
let's say is 4.8 - which is actually on the high side. Anyway 85% of
that would be 4.08VDC so the closed throttle setting doesn't mean crap.
If you adjusted the closed throttle setting thru it's whole range, which
may be +/- 0.25 VDC, WOT would still be seen as WOT by the EEC.

He needs to get higher octane and check to see that there's enough EGR
flow (which effects how fast you can get to full throttle - a different
story)and keep the KS conencted (and/or reduce boost pressure).
