Not in a Renault though, as it was a Volvo engine in Volvo guise. It's 
been a few year since I did that engine now...

It's an F-series Volvo engine in Renault guise - the engineeing is not 
specifc to the DeLorean as you keep insisting, blaming Dumurry/DMC/JZD 
or whoever you can think of off hand. Turn it into an E series Volvo 
engine (except pistons), or equivalent Renault B29 and you get a more 
powerul, more economical engine without emissions controls. I'm not 
shouting from the rooftops about regressing to an earlier inferior 
system every time someone posts a problem, simply because I don't like 
or understand it.
