Re: [DML] DeLorean Product Review - Don's Crazy Cams and Hervey's Headers

A standard DeLorean was dynoed in the UK at 85hp at the wheels.

UN1 transmissions have been dynoed many times and they consistently show 
a drag of 40-45hp

I'm still sceptical about the claims attached to Don's cams as nobody 
has yet produced a dyno plot from an engine using them. 60hp JUST from 
the cams & stock exhaust is wishful thinking. Maybe close with 
port&polish and a free-flow, but you really need to raise compression too
