Re: [DML] Re: "Fastest" DeLoreans (WAS: Don Steger's cams)

How have you got 210 at the wheels from standard cams????? Not possible 
IMO. I've seen 160 rwhp from an Alpine GTA atmo running a set of triple 
webers and a free-flow exhaust on standrd cams and was certainly rapid, 
(by comparison, Houston's Stage II is roughly 130-140 on a good day). 
I've worked on a 3 litre turbo Alpine which pushed 280 rwhp

It's so easy to throw figures around but until I see a dyno plot, I'll 
reserve judgement (and remain very sceptical - sorry!) Just like a 
DeLorean capable of 1/4 in 9's on a PRV ? Not a chance in hell. Check 
out to see the kind of work that is involved 
in an already seriously fast car to get it below 10. I've worked on a 
320hp turbo PRV and believe me it would be thoroughly dangerous in a 

Nissan Skyline GTSt 240rwhp.
