Re: [DML] Re: Turbocharger availability

Just to be clear, this problem was on my ISLAND turbo

As I have stated before on the DML, I pay close
attention to turbo DeLoreans at DCS and other DeLorean
events.   I have yet to see with my own eyes a
DeLorean with a turbo kit that does not have a small
amount of pressure in the crankcase even at idle. 
Most had small amounts of smoke coming out too.

6068 was so bad (before I removed the engine) that
under full boost the oil breather would pop out of the
engine, and oil would spray out of it.  On select
occasions, the oil would hit the exterior of the
exhaust/turbo and start a fire.  Good thing I kept a
fire extinguisher with me!

The project to do a engine swap in 6068 is back on
track now..  So all is well!  Maybe when I am done
with it, I will tear down the PRV I removed from 6068
to see exactly what is broken.

1860, the Legend turbo does not have any of these
