Re: [DMCForum] Response to DW D1 add and Extreme Prices for DOA Las Vegas event



Martin,

I agree with you that there are too few D owners who a willing to make 
this upgrade.
Clearly, it is a "factory" PRV engine.   There are a number of factors 
that are in involved:

I don't know if this engine is emission compliant.   This a big problem 
is some parts of the US.

On the other hand, There are only a few D owners who really are 
experienced and comfortable with working on their cars.   There are 
even fewer owners,  who have the ability to deal with significant 
issues like turbos and 3 liter conversions.

This means that most D owners would need a mechanic who is capable of 
maintaining and fixing these turbo engines.   With DMCH expanding their 
repair network,  this capability may  be possible in the far future.

What would be essential to this, is the availability of parts for 
maintenance and service.
Needless to say,  parts availability for an "alpine turbo" engine in 
the US is near zero.

If you were to source these parts and make them readily available,  
that might help.


Clearly, what you have done with your D is fantastic and worthwhile 
upgrade.

Bob
