[DML] Re: Installation of overdrive trans or adapter kit for the DeLorean



For the minor amount of possible benefit you can gain from mixing up your own fuel and the huge possabilities of damaging your fuel system and motor it doesn't make sense trying to create your own blend. As for modifying the ignition system, again, minor gains to be had over a well functioning stock system. As for swapping transmissions, the choices are very limited, even more so if you want automatic. Modifying the existing transmission is not an option, very few off-the-shelf choices of internals. There are *some* things you can do like changing the stall speed of the torque convertor and changing the final drive ratio but in the end you will not be gaining much but spending a lot of money trying. All fuel cleaners say on them not for continuous use. When you start experimenting any damage you cause will be at your expense. The materiels in the Delorean's fuel system were not designed for high levels of additives and there are already plenty of them in today's fuel!
