[DML] Re: "The Sacrilege of the PRV " or "To Swap or Not to Swap (the Engine)"



FWIW, I have no interest in ever performing an engine swap.  Instead I have wondered how others felt about such a task, not necessarily in technical terms, but more metaphorical; i.e. the engine symbollically representing the core essence, or heart, of the DeLorean.
   
  Yeah, I'm a weird one. :O )
   
  To me, the perfect DeLorean is one with a modifed PRV and minor interior altercations to suit my tastes.  The only engine swap I would be interested in would be one of the 650HP race-version PRV's.  Now that would be wicked!  
   
  I just couldn't understand the mindset of wanting to put a different engine in the D because it's a nice reliable engine when kept up, but from the posts this topic has generated I see that engine swapping is just another form of modification.  And that is ususally for wont of more power.  Much like me wanting to take a Hyundai Tiburon and stuff the 3.8L Azera engine under the hood!
   
  I suppose I've held a false reverence for the D since I've wanted one for so long.  But I will have one and she will be mine to enjoy.
   
  Thanks guys, you gave me what I wanted: different views on the purpose of swappng the PRV for a different powerplant.
   
  Topic closed. :O )
