Re: [DML] Fastest quarter mile

I'll be lagging behind Edward for some time with his custom pistons in 
an Eagle engine, cams from a B280E and a whopping turbo.

I can tell you all about how 320hp and 360ft-lbs feels like in a GTA, 
but that's way beyond what would be safe in a DeLorean. I am bogged down 
in customer work for the time being but have recently bought two more 
Z7U engine/transmission combos giving me a total of three complete 
setups that I can drop in DeLoreans. The Z7U is the 2458cc turbo engine 
used in the GTA and R25 Turbo

So technically it'll only be modified to put the turbo in a different 
place.... :-)

Here're some figures to beat. These are for a standard GTA Turbo running 
standard boost. The differences from a DeLorean are - slightly smaller 
back wheels, slightly taller 4th and 5th gears, better aerodynamics. 
That's it.

0-60 <7 secs
standing 1/4 mile 14.5 sec
Top speed 155mph

That's from "only" 200hp. Goes to show how hp figures mean very little...
