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

I'm not disputing that, and it's likely that there's a lot more I don't
know about the car's modifications... I just know that those are the
numbers that the dyno gave him when he last ran it on one.

I'll be seeing him in a few days and I'll ask him what else has been
done.  Since you're probably the lists's most knowledgeable person about
PRV's, I'd rather believe that I missed something he told me than that
this engine contradicts all known history of these engines.. because
that means I have to explain over and over to people that no, I don't
know why it's that powerful, it doesn't make sense to me either, but
that's what it is, etc...

Hopefully I can get an answer that'll satisfy everyone.
