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



A rough estimate would be between £4000-5000 (getting on for $10000) for 
a complete setup, ready to drop in and go, after swapping over a bunch 
of bits from your old engine!

The actual -engine- is around $3000. It's when you start including 
custom ECUs chargecoolers, custom exhaust etc etc etc that things get 
pricey! DMCH's setup works with what you have and the only "new" parts 
are the exhaust and reground cams.

I'm hardly expecting anyone to bite right now. The exchange rate is 
putting paid to that, but the one thing that I want to stress is how a 
turbo PRV looks on paper compared to how it goes on the road. They knock 
out in incredible amount of torque. The standard GTA V6 Turbo's 2.5 
engine puts out "only" 200hp but I feel very safe saying that one of 
them would wipe the floor with one of DMCH's stage II's (and ours!). I'm 
aiming for 250hp from the 3 litre turbo but should be able to achieve 
300ft-lbs, so an uprated clutch will be highly recommended..... :-D

Basically: You can take your DeLorean to its limits with a PRV.
