problems with VK EFI

ok heres my current situation, ive had my 1985 EFI VK for about a year now and ive had serviced twice and had to have the camshaft gears replaced as well, the main problem is that when i start her up she blows a bluey grey smoke cloud, which may i say really impress the boys and the ladies, to go with that she has a really rough idle it seems to have trouble either breathing or getting fuel as the revs are all over the place and after a while the rev difference gets so much it stalls the only way to fix this is to boot the accelerator when it starts to die. plus it will sometimes stall when going from drive to reverse when its just started up. does anyone have any ideas, i would like to know wether to trouble shoot this now as im looking at upgrading the exhaust system and chaning it from an auto to an manual, is it worth the trouble shooting or should i put up with it for now and get it all rebuilt later?

Old 202

hey all.. I need some advice and info on my engine.

first of all, i want to say that my background on cars is pretty low so if i say somthing which makes no sense or is completely wrong, break it to me slowly.

I noticed recently that my hj (202) was chewing up too much petrol. after speaking with a mate that is pretty handy with cars, we decided to run a compression test on it, which failed miserably. (the worst cyl#3 barely pulled 30psi)
