RE: [DML] Re: Bolt On Performance.

I have offered up kits and donated kit and I either get no feed or very
little back.  Most people don't want to spend the money and find out what
they are asking me. 
Put the stock car on the Dyno and do the test, then go and install the parts
and go back for another test. That's time and money for the test. So their
tune up cost say $175.00 for the better parts + maybe another $150.00 for
the test. For what, just to prove a point that it works.

This is absolutely ridiculous.? I think many people on the DML would like to
have this solved once and for all so the arguing can stop.? 

I don't see a single person on here saying the 'performance' parts don't
work well in the DeLorean.? But it is truely surprising that a handful of
DML'ers are either avoiding the real question or simply just don't get it.? 

The REAL QUESTION is "What Horsepower or Torque Advantage Will I Have When
Using 'Performance Parts' Versus My NEW STOCK OEM (Not 25 year old garbage)

Why is it so unreasonable to provide this information or to ask the
question?? The question is not whether it costs more, or does it fit, or is
it 'proper' to put non-stock parts on, it's about what will someone like me,
with 11596, which had a full OEM-style tune-up three years ago,
runs?properly and gets 30 mpg on the interstate at 75 mph and starts
immediately every single time??- what gain will someone like ME get???? 

Surely someone on here has access to a dyno.? Who out there does????? Once
someone volunteers, I think Hervey needs to donate a tune-up kit so someone
can put up some numbers.? It's unreasonable to make claims, then when
someone asks you to prove it, to say I don't have to, but if you don't
believe me, spend the cash so I make a profit on your tests.? It would be
better for someone like Hervey to say, "I have so much confidence in my
product, that I will LOAN it to someone who has a dyno to test it and prove
the claims."? Then he gets his product back after a 5 minute run.? The catch
would be to make sure the two or three runs are scientifically controlled,
so that any variance is absolutely dependant on the parts used.? And it
shouldn't be conducted by someone with a hot head...

So now, who has a dyno??

VIN 11596
