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

Well flywheel hp means very little "in the real world" - I'd go with kW 
at the wheels - but you know what'd happen - everyone would convert it 
to hp to understand the figure :-D

Plus not all rolling roads are created equal either. I also read a 
lovely quote from an "expert" on the Alpine forum who said that the R25 
Turbo, despite having the same engine, is actually quicker than the 
Alpine GTA V6 Turbo "because it has a front mounted intercooler". He 
missed the point that the 25 turbo has a lower final drive and therefore 
shorter gears and will accellerate better. Definitely a lower top speed
