[DML] Re: stage II



I have no problem with owners that modify and customize their cars. I
do not encourage it nor recomend it but if that's what you want to do
"GO for It" and enjoy. I only try to point out some of the things to
consider, for instance, who is going to service it, does it really do
as claimed, how long is it going to last, and if it affects the value
is it a negative or a positive? For the owner that can and does do his
own work it may be cheaper for him to do but in the process he loses a
"second opinion" by not having a mechanic to help him understand what
is going on. Of course the car was built to an economic sell point. Of
course we have "Leather Seating Surfaces" and a crummy radio. If you
start changing everything at what point is it NOT a Delorean? IMHO the
closer you can keep a car to it's origionality the more valuable it
is. Things that can be easily undone (replacing an ignition coil for
example) have less of an effect than say doing an engine swap. That
said it IS your car to do with as you wish. You can even drive it off
a cliff!!!!!!! (Just kidding but someone is NOT!) Keep trying to
improve the car and let us know what works and what doesn't. Not all
of us can change a distributer cap and rotor in 5 minutes. If we all
could a tune-up would be a LOT cheaper and quicker!!!!! BTW many of
the "upgrades" you mention are for safety or reliablity, not to
improve performance.
