[DML] Re: benefits of 3.0 Eagle Premier engine

I'll speak up since Ive had recent experience with this swap.

While the Eagle engine is the same family of engine as the DeLorean, 
its not a simple swap.  Once you change the lower engine cradle to the 
DeLorean style cradle it is a simple bolt in, as far as the tranny and 
motor mounts are concerned.  After that you do have to make a bunch of 
accomadations for the newer style engine and here are some that come to 

Computer to run the EFI and ignition
DeLorean or Eagle A/C compressor
V belt or serpentine belt 
Exhaust system
Throttle hook up
Air intake hook up
... and the list goes on with all kinds of little stuff.

Its not that bad, but its no cake walk either.

At the open house in Chicago I let some owners drive the car to give me 
their seat of the pants impression.

Don Steger said he thought it had more guts than the Stage II engine.

Stephen Wynn said he thought it had better low end and mid range pull 
than the Stage II but kind of fell off on the top end.

Of course I have yet to dyno it and these are just seat of the pants 

The engine I have is running headers and the MegaSquirtnSpark computer 
setup.  The gameplan for the setup is to also install a ATI Procharger.

existing wiring?
