[DML] Re: Turbocharger availability

I think you are referring to Island Turbo. At the last communication I
had with Eleanor, who owns Island Turbo, at this time complete kits
are not available. Many parts are still in stock but the castings are
not being produced right now. This kit is not recomended for automatic
transmissions either. You might be able to find a set-up that was
removed from a car but parts will be missing and the turbos will
probably have to be rebuilt. Installation is no small task. It
involves drilling and tapping the block, exhaust system work (you have
to remove the entire old system) and removing and replacing the
distributer. When you are all done you MUST limit the boost to 5 lbs
or less. Any more than that and you WILL blow the ring lands off the
stock pistons. This means you will only see a gain of about 30 HP. It
does make a difference in the way the car moves but it is hard to
justify the expense for the limited gains in performance. The other
popular system on Deloreans is the BAE single turbo set-up. I do not
think any of that is available as a kit but you may be able to build
one up out of parts. The third turbo set-up was the Legend Industries
turbo with aftercoolers. Very limited production (prototypes really)
so you are not going to find any of those.
