[DML] Re: DMC spark plugs



One thing you certainly want to keep in mind when listening to people's
successes with ignition components is the fact that they may well have been
replacing complete junk.

If you replace a 25 year old coil, cap, rotor, plugs, and wires with brand
new 9.5 mm wires, platinum plugs, top of the line dist. cap and rotor, and a
"high performance" coil... the difference may well be night and day.

But if you replace those 25 year old parts with 7.5 mm wires, cheapo
Autolite sparkplugs, and an OEM cap, rotor, and coil, the difference may
well be night and day, simply because what you had before was crap and what
you have now functions well.  Longevity... well, that's another topic.
Performance... well, the PRV isn't exactly a ground-pounder and I really
would like to see some dyno numbers that say it's worth it to throw on a
bunch of "high-performance" (note the quotes) ignition parts.

And speaking of dyno numbers, I'm really surprised to see that only one or
two people spoke up about having a dyno session at a DeLorean event.  It
seems like more people would want to have hard data about the state of their
powertrain than just the seat of the pants "feels like it's running right to
me" (affectionately known as "the ass dyno".)
