Re: [DML] Re: "Fastest" DeLoreans (Marc and Martin)



Hiya

Well it sounds like a fairly sstraitforward 3 litre odd-fire (and yes 
you have to do something with the conrods and/or guidgeon pins as 
they're different odd-to-even). Including Nitrous, yes, you could 
feasibly get 210 at the wheels - but IMO that's cheating :-)  I assume 
it's running stock heads? This misses an opportunity because the valves 
are considerably larger on the 3 litre engines although you have to play 
with the inlet ports or modify the original heads for the bigger valves 
(they will fit). The Eagle had a static CR of 9.2:1 I believe.The 
european Z7X engines are 9.6:1. I'd be worried about lightening up the 
flywheel as I've seen standard GTA flywheels full of cracks. Centreforce 
clutches are just re-branded Valeo ones and are cheaper from Renault. 

Just as a comparison, someone posted this little vid on the Alpine forum 
today

This is a 3 litre 24v PRV with triple webers and mapped ignition. 240hp 
at the flywheel, just shy of 200 at the wheels.
