RE: [DML] Re: EFI? Megasquirt?

I must disagree with you on some points.  I agree about the setup and
service which is why I have been developing a bolt on kit and I am trying to
work with the DeLorean vendors to have them as the distributors.  However,
the prime benefits will be improved starting in all conditions and cold
running.   Also, I am expecting a good performance increase (due to removal
of the K-jet airflow plate) and increased gas mileage.  It is planned to be
a 100% bolt on with no holes drilled.  I have over a year in development and
I am close to a final product.  Don't get me wrong... the k-jet was very
good for it's time and a system in good working order or nearly good working
order should probably be kept.

  For all of the effort, time, and money spent on these kinds of
  conversions this could all be better spent getting the J-Jet running
  well. Once you finish these kinds of modifacations who can service it?
  The final outcome is in many ways determined by the competance of the
  installer. Most who do it have never done one and this is the FIRST
  ONE!!!! It will not make the car more saleable or worth more, it will
  not produce much in the way of added performance, and depending on how
  good a job the insaller did it won't make the drivability any better
  (probably worse, especially the cold drivability). About the only
  significant improvement *might* be slightly better gas mileage. It
  will certainly be a lot more complicated! Many do not give enough
  credit to the K-Jet. It is a relatively reliable and rugged system. It
  does age and some parts need to be replaced over time and it is very
  susceptable to dirt. The biggest problem it has is people that work on
  it and do not understand how to set it up and get it working properly.
  Once set up right and running properly it is very efficient and
  robust. Unless you are going to make a lot of changes to the stock
  motor, staying with the K-Jet makes a lot of sense.
