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

This is the problem with mis-quoting. I was talking about horsepower at 
the wheels. This is very different from hp at the flywheel which is 
where Houston (and all the manfucaturers out there) quote their best 
figure. The dyno session I know about (wasn't there) on a DMCH Stage II 
hit 130 at the wheels. The Alpine I was with at a rolling road was 
measured at 43hp drag in the transmission, but it's not an exact 
science. That hit 260+hp at the wheels from a chargecooled 3 litre turbo 
running 1.2 bar of boost (18psi) so you can understand my skepticism 
that ANY 3 litre naturally asp 12v PRV can hit 210 at the wheels, 
especially when running K-Jet.
