[DML] Re: Bolt On Performance.



My point EXACTLY! Too many times someone will replace old, worn out 
parts with some new "performance" part. They get a big difference 
and give all of the credit to the "performance" part when in fact 
ANY new part would have given the same improvement. This is NOT the 
way to compare stock vs performance parts. In the real world it is 
rare to be able to bolt on a part and get much if any improvement 
over stock. If it was that easy the factory would have done it! Now, 
with that said there ARE some things that can help. Better air 
filters, synthetic oil, fuel additives, Water Wetter, and the many 
upgrades that fix the known and common Delorean problems including 
the recalls are things that can improve the car. Braided steel brake 
hoses and clutch lines are a "bolt-on" that can give a lot of 
improvement.
