[DML] Re: DeLorean Thoughts



The only drawback with carbs is that once setup correct,from that 
time and moment on it deteriorates from it's setting,in other 
words,you will have to do constant adjustments to compensate for wear 
and tear on the ignition parts,such as the spark gap getting 
larger/worn ,timing, dist.cap wear,choke adjustments etc.
And of course the gas mileage will be less since carbs are not as 
precise as F.I.
And you will have to either adapt the OEM air cleaner to the carb,or 
do a ram air setup(you DO NOT want a open air cleaner in the DMC 
engine compartment!!) Too much hot air in there!

Unlike with F.I. and on-board computer control,that compensates for 
wear and tear in the performance of the engine,and automatically 
adjusts itself it will also sense and automatically adjust for 
temp,speed,performance,and any problem that is encountered with the 
engine,and at worst case the on board Computer Control will  set you 
up on "limp home mode"(check engine light on) to get you home or to a 
service center.

Where as with a carb,it will just stop running and strand you on the 
side of the road..all tho with the K-Jet it does that anyway!!
