Re: [DML] Performace fuel system



And to add to Steve's comments about Marc's comments...

Ive been running the Mega Squirt-n-Spark system on my 3.0 Eagle for a 
year now.  The car has made several long distance trips and the 
performance has been noticably better.  It's truely amazing how much 
more @#$#$ and get the Eagle has with EFI, distributorless ignition, 
and a set of headers.

While the engine does drop in without a lot of work, don't think for 
a moment it's a cakewalk.  If your a Fast & Furious computer geek you 
will probably not have a problem, but the MS computer was the biggest 
challenge as far as the swap goes... but thats probably because I'm 
not a computer guy.

scope, if you wanted to stay with the PRV, it would have been better 
to start with an Eagle 3.0.  They're readily available and cheap and 
you get larger displacement, even fire, electronic ignition, higher 
stock compression, and it's already equipped with EFI and all 
sensors.  As Delorean engine "swaps" go, it's about the easiest one 
out there.  You change out the lower crank case with the Delorean one 
(to get the motor mounts in the right spot), then it bolts in just 
like the original PRV.  No adapter plates or frame modifications.
