[DML] Re: Delorean Owner



Engine conversions also occur although at a lower rate. It is not up to me to accept that owners will modify their cars, they will do it no matter what my personal opinion is. My only effort is to try to communicate the pros and cons of what they intend to do. In the case of engine conversions you cannot expect much (if any) support from this forum or any of the Delorean venders or shops. Not because we don't want to, we just don't know what you have done. Same goes for the carburetors. When an owner decides to customize their car and it is non-stock, they must also assume their own support. At this time DMCH and it's affiliates does not support engine conversions (except for the Stage I & II) or carburetors. Maybe that will change, maybe not. What are owners who converted to carburetors to do if you are no longer are around to help them? The answer is that they will have to fend for themselves when they have a problem. Some may be able to, some maybe not. They should understand this BEFORE contemplating the change.

Not only are carbureted DeLoreans here to stay, but their numbers increase at a fairly steady rate of at least 4 per year (I don't know how many conversions Byrne has done -- at least three). The sooner you learn to live with them, the happier you will be.

I submit that there are MANY more owners that had problems with K-Jet and with the right fix are VERY pleased with the car now. It would be more interesting to compare what happens to a K-Jet vs a carburetor on a Delorean that sat for an extended period. I would guess neither would fare well. Probably a major reason for most of the problems on the cars with a K-Jet anyway. As for asking them, I did. Many will admit to drivability issues when cold.
