RE: [DML] Catalytic converter

Jon, I'm john Hervey here in Forney, Texas 20 mi east of Dallas. Yes the cat
if stopped up will hinder performance but I feel that the injectors need to
be cleaned or replaced first. I have more people that have performance
problems due to bad injectors.
By the way, welcome to the DeLorean community.

I'm Jon and new to the list.  I recently purchased my first delorean, it's a
1982 with fuel door.  My question is the engine runs real bad when cold, and
runs a bit better when warm.  I am familiar with Bosch early fuel injection
as I have restored my far share of VDubs.  The question I have is do the
catalytic converters in the DMC 12 have a history of colapsing or cloging?
It seems to me the engine is being very sluggish. and not very responsive to
engine throtle.  Could this be due to the converter or does anyone have
another answer like injectors, timing, etc.  Any help would be greatly


By the way I live in Texas
