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

Possible, but not like this, IMHO

I know of a 2664 (88mm bore) odd-fire running triple webers, free-flow 
exhaust, high lift cams, custom pocketed pistons, custom conrods and a 
CR over 11:1, mapped ignition, lightened flywheel, twin plate clutch, 
ported and polished, big valves.... the list goes a lot further and 
produces just shy of 100hp/litre, which given transmission losses would 
account for 210 at the wheels from a 3 litre.

I'll let everyone know what my recent 3 litre Alpine project produces 
when mapped up. This is a genuine euro 3 litre 12v EFI even fire lump 
which in the car it came from pushed a mere 170hp. Wasn't half torquey 
though... (unfortunately DeLorean work has got in the way!)

(PS my 24v Citroen got sold on ebay and now lives in France)
