[DML] Removed throttle spring *Thumbs Up*



Since I run the 3.0L engine with a B280F throttle body, I had been wanting to reduce the size of the throttle spool assembly.  So I took the B280F throttle spool and the stock 2.85L DeLorean throttle spool, and made a frankenstein throttle spool from the two of them.  Fine.  What I didn't like was the amount of force required to depress the accelerator.  So, I removed the topmost throttle spring (the one shown here: http://specialtauto.com/delorean-parts/images/full-throttle-sw.jpg.  Wow, what a difference!  I would encourage the rest of you to try it.  I don't use an idlespeed microswitch, so having the throttle spool return with enough force to depress that may be an issue.  Mine seems to return just fine, even though I do have a TPS sensor hooked up.  

Along those same lines, I do now have a full-throttle microswitch for sale, and it will go on eBay shortly unless someone shoots me an e-mail.
