Actually, you have that backwards. Generally turbo systems that are
offered as kits are 'bolt on' for the most part. I've never had any
experience with delorean kits though, (Heck. I'm not sure I could even
DRIVE yet when the various kits were still available, as by then the
cars were allready over ten years old) but even if you did need to pull
the motor to install it, you still wouldn't have to dismantle and
rebuild the motor. do extensive porting and polishing, install new cams,
etc, that you would have to to improve NA performance.  With the turbo
(when dealing with a kit that has all the parts supplied anyway) all
you'd need to do would be remove the existing exhaust system, bolt on
the turbo manifolds, plumb for oil and air, do the required distributer
and enrichment mods, put it all back in and be on your way.  Now if your
trying to design your own turbo setup, things become a bit more
complicated, but not overly so if your goals are to apply the turbo to a
stock engine.

(who has been following this thread with quite alot of interest, but has pretty much reached the conclusion that it'd actually be cheaper to do an engine swap with a more easily turbo'd engine than it would be to build and turbo a PRV that could crank out much more than 210hp or so.. )
