RE: [DML] Re: Turbocharger availability

Hey guys,  this is just some of my input here.  I built a large amount of
high hp 4 cyl., cars.  Although I am not familiar with the turbo used on
these kits,  I do know that there are a lot of more efficient models on the
market.  The DeLorean rear mounted engine is the perfect setup for a set of
top mount intercoolers like the ledgend cars had.  In my past experience
with a lower compression ratio, better pistons rings (turbo rings are shaped
differently), piston ring spacing, I have been able to run 15 psi all day
without much failure, and 25 psi on track days (4 cyl car though).  It seems
though that no one is really sure what was done to a ledgend car in the
first place to indicate what is 100% different.  If anyone in interest I'm
sure we could assemble a small turbo system with new kkk turbos,  that would
be reliable.  Do this date my largest engine put down 570whp (awd car) at 25

     I have an Autometer boost gauge installed to monitor my
vacuum/boost pressure.  Phoenix is at about 1400 ft. in elevation. 
After talking with Rob Grady about how I would use the car, he decided
on 5.5 PSI as the maximum setting for me.  I've hit it twice in 12,000
miles and that was for maybe a mile or so during a high speed run. 
Normally when I am in boost I see 3 or 4 psi max and it is definitely
noticeable, but I'm not in boost conditions for more than a mile or
two at a time.  I just don't find the need, usually due to speed
