[DML] Re: DeLorean vs Volvo F Series Question (Joe Dalton)



No, my comments refer to F Series.

Check out the vacuum hose diagrams in the Files section of the Yahoo
website:
http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/dmcnews/files/Other%20PRV%20Literature/

There are significant differences between Volvo E and F Series:
- No Lambda
- Different CPR (plumbed differently for full throttle vacuum enrichment)
- Different injectors
- No EGR (our DeLoreans don't have it either -- that's what the plate
on the U Pipes caps off)
- Early E Series had no CIS, a single piece fuel/air mixture unit, and
a short throttle plate arm with only one screw (no provision for a CIS
microswitch)

Message #74165 notes differences between Volvo F Series, already
approved for US import, and DeLorean's particular modifications. And
my question remains: Why? It seems to introduce too many problems. It
also flattens the advance curve, leading to reduced performance. DMC
would have been better off just dropping in stock Volvo units.
