Re: [DML] Re: startup video

Once my car is good and warmed up, the idle does not vary by more than  a 
couple RPM (you can barely tell the needle is moving, it's more your ears  that 
tell you it is not EFI).  But I have also spent many hours and $$$ on  
adjusting everything just right.  I also have DMCH's performance exhaust,  but even 
when I was stock, it did not vary much either once I had everything  figured out.
In my opinion, a lot of DeLoreans were probably not set up perfectly at the  
factory, or 25 years later many are out of tune, even after new plugs, wires,  
etc.  It is possible to have lambda and a very smooth engine if you have it  
tweaked just right.  Not many people go to those lengths however, since the  
K-Jet is actually quite forgiving and 'self-tuning' to an extent.

When I  ran K-Jet with balance screw idle and no Lambda (my Euro-spec
fuel  distributor wasn't even set up for external regulation), my idle
never  fluctuated as stock DeLoreans are prone to do.
