Re: [DML] Limits of stock transmission



Are you sure he wasn't talking about the auto trans?

I can tell you that 300ft-lbs and over 300hp is way too much in a 
DeLorean, IMO

I don't know what power Legend managed to extract from a 2.8 odd-fire 
but I -can- tell you that the Venturi 260 pushed 260hp and 298ft-lbs of 
torque.... and the transmission in this one, currently at my workshop, 
is perfectly okay after 80,000 miles :-)
