Re: [DML] DeLorean vs Volvo F Series Question (Martin Gutkowski)



Doesn't your 11/28/06 post to the deloreans.co.uk BBS answer that
question -- What is an F Series engine doing in the UK? If your info
RE: Renault's efforts to import into Switzerland is correct, then
emissions controls are required there (pertinent to DeLorean owners
because you identify that engine configuration as the basis of our
original blocks). Your B28F could have been intended for the Swiss market.

I have never disputed that you've done a lot of PRV retrofitting in
DeLorean engine bays. 

Isn't all that retrofitting prima facie evidence that the stock
DeLorean configuration is sub-optimal.

I believe your direct quote RE: the E series configuration in your
personal DeLorean was "weeee." DeLoreans weren't weeee from the factory.

There is much room for improvement.
