[DML] Re: Delorean vs Volvo Fuel Distributor



Fueld distributors are not exactly model specific persay.  I have 
had a Porshe 911 tubo fd and warm up regulator working on my car for 
years.  But they had to be switchd out as a unit.  My car runs 
extremly smooth (almost smoother then most deloreans i have listened 
to), and does not suffer the idle surge so many deloreans have.
