if you unplug the computer then you have nothing running the injectors ...
and i would bet he has a leak somewhere in between the engine and the maf sensor causing it to start hard
the occasionally forgotten to re attach vacum line <i always hate those>

ive always had to crack the throttle to get that car to start from day one. back in the early subaru turbo days there was a TSB out about this if im not mistaken...i have to do the same on my XT.
a new fuel pressure regulator may/may not fix this - who knows.
re: the jumpy tach - this wasnt a disty issue. i think it was just some little annoying voltage thing...youll notice when it starts jumping around a bit, if you were to turn on the headlights or some other big electrical thing on the car it'll either calm down or stop completely...another external ground will probably prevent this from happening again.

on another note, what do i need to read the ecs code?? never messed with them before..
i'm assuming the little black box under the steering column is the computer.. its got a red light that flashes 3 long and 3 short per cycle.. any ideas?
never had to crack the throttle at all on my 86' turbo wagon, and its got 290k on it. lol at any rate, maybe i'll pull the FPR off it and see what it does..
