[DML] Re: Advantages of Spec .01 Exhaust

"... an engine developed with fuel injection...." 

Quick history lesson for you:

The PRV was laid down in the late 1960's, and debuted in 1974 under a carburetor (single barrel Solex) in the Volvo 264. In 1975 it appeared under dual carburetors (1 and 2 barrel Solexes) in the Peugeot 504 and Renault 30. That same setup was used in the 1976 Alpine. Renault starting winning a variety of races in 1978 with Alpines powered by triple carburated PRV's (three 2 barrel Webers). K-Jet as you know it was not installed on the PRV until 1978/1979 -- almost 10 years after initial engine design.

You cannot possibly expect an engine developed with fuel injection to meet California emission standards to even come close to those standards again when you toss all the fuel components away and do a Rube Goldberg carburetor install.
