Anything at this point. Honestly, for me it's either sell the
DeLorean, or buy something else to use for a daily and reserve the
DeLorean for weekends, or start getting serious about a swap. I like
the Buick 3800SC option; only ~280hp but it's at ~28 miles per gallon
and I'm very familiar with this engine, having had a Series I in my
last Fiero. A modern Series III would be slick and from what I hear,
they fit well into the DeLorean engine compartment.

Well, I see no logical reason to have a DeLorean at all, so might as
well be illogical when choosing a transmission, too. ;-) I wish I
could see some good up close pictures of the frame modification for
this 6 speed to determine if I want to undertake such a thing.

Oh, come on, Mark. That's be classy! You should re-do it that way. ;-)

Well, you know. It beats 190 posts, 180 of them from you and 10 from
others complaining about you.
