[DML] Re: Want a DeLorean

Be warned that the Eagle engine swap is not exactly a bolt-and-swap
affair. For example the crankcase will not work. You have to use the
"Delorean" crankcase. The motor mounts will have to be modified too. A
 lot of work for very little, if any, improvement. A better way to go
would be to pull the stock motor, sell it, and stick a Stage I motor
in from DMCH. This is the way to go especially if your old motor is
dead. I am not sure what the cost is today but I am sure it is way
less than $10,000 even with shipping. It would require NO
modifacation. You would even recoup some money from the sale of your
old motor.
