Re: [DML] Re: Delorean Owner



It amazes me that someone can spend 4000 and still not be satisfied though (presumably including labour). I think I'd be cheesed off by then too! However to blame k jet as the root of all evil is simply inaccurate.

Most problems with the K-jet will not require a complete system overhaul. A conversion is an all or nothing venture so it WILL cost $1,100. Again you are not comparing apples with apples. That number that John H threw out on K-jet was an upper limit. The thing that irks me the most about all of this is that for any and every problem with the original fuel system your answer is not to fix it but to replace it. Even when it is a small, easily fixable problem.

Pretty much takes all the wind out of financial arguments against carburetion if K-Jet costs are the same (other arguments remain of course, pro and con, but cost no longer appears to be one of them).
