RE: [DML] Bolt On Performance.

I have heard that airplanes get better mileage when the are washed, so maybe
we should come up with a performance wash. No, Really. Has anyone seen any
performance gains on the DeLorean with the Nology wires that Houston has
posted? Most of the times we go off of factory specifications and the
research they have done and what other people have done to improve their
cars performance for better being. As some parts get improved at the
factories and we use them and feel the improvement in the way the car gets
on the freeway from the entrance ramp so we start using that part, not that
the original haven't been obsoleted but there is just a better mouse trap
out there. 
Ball joints a little beefier, diodes a little more voltage and current,
bolts plated better and so on. 
I read and subscribe to a lot of automotive magazines and articles that can
give me better ideas for the car and that why I'm always on the look out.
I also listen to customers as to what they would like to have like Stainless
Steel headers, coolant tank with a sight glass and something to get rid of
that pesky hose on the bottom of the fuel pump.
That's just the way I am.

I am not shooting any arrows at you but the stock OEM parts were
plenty good enough for 20 years and they got the car certified by the
EPA. I will concede that there could be some performance gains
achieved by upgrading and using newer parts. My point is I would want
to see what gains are with #'s, not subjective opinions. New parts are
always going to be better than old, worn out parts, stock or performance.
As a vendor you have to pander to the customer. If the customer wants
blue wires he gets blue wires. If the customer will pay for and demand
a "performance" coil, the vendors will see that he gets it! I have no
problem with that but in my case if I am shelling out extra money for
"performance" I want to know what I am getting. As for Mark, it is
difficult to convey his dry sarcasim in writing. I know after I change
the oil in my car it sounds and runs better too! Maybe better than
when I wash it!
