RE: [DML] 3.8 liter GM engines



Rex:
 
I have a project car that I am considering doing a 3.8 (3800) swap.  I have done some research and the 3.8 can be matched exactly with a specific GM FWD transaxle (both auto and manual).  I have taken measurements for the Delorean engine bay and the 3.8 with the transaxle and it SEEMS (which is always a huge assumption) to fit.  Obviously I would have to do some frame modifications/supporting to make it fit.  I have also found a lot of 3.8 support of the web which is helpful. http://www.3800performance.com/  My biggest hold up is that these engines are fuel injected and use computers.  If I could use a carberated engine, wiring & install would be a lot easier because I would not have to deal with computers.  I have looked into sevearl carberated engines however, I cannot find an engine / FWD transaxle combo that I feel comfortable with.  Any input on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

	I honestly cant figure out why people would think the DeLorean had the buick
	3.8 in it... I can understand them confusing the PRV with the chevy 2.8 v6
	though... Like others have said, probly just a lot of folklore...
	
	 On another note:
	
	Has anyone ever tried putting a 3.8 in a DeLorean?... That's whats under my
	hood right now and its a pretty sweet engine. I've seen turbos and
	superchargers put on them making alot of hp/torque... Lots of f-body's and
	w-body's out there to pull'em out of if someone is willing to try that
	conversion :) Moment of opinion: I know that the 3.8 can sound pretty ricey
	with headers n exhaust mods but i dunno how that would apply if modified to
	fit the exhaust of a D...
	
	My .02 cents...
	
	Later bro's
