    I chatted with Josh and he suggested I might need a valve adjustment. It's been about 20,000 miles since it was done. I don't want to attempt it myself and my experience with local shops has been...

    Yeah, it's with the car parked and revving it up to 2500 - 3000 rpm (such as while checking dwell or doing an emissions test) . I've never really noticed it much while driving but idk if it's because...

    Yeah, I've noticed that before but what I was specifically concerned about was hearing the noise when I hold the throttle steady at 2500, unless whatever small variation in pressure is enough to make...

    My buddy who also has a DPI exhaust came over and listened and said his car makes the same noise. He said his friend who has a new Mustang had the same thing and they told him at the Ford dealership...

    Ah, OK. I think I can rule that out. Braking seems normal and I drove it to Wendover last month (100 miles each way) and didn't experience any of that.

    Oh, forgot to mention, my timing was slightly off (between 14 and 16) so I adjusted that too.

    I'd notice other symptoms if my brakes were dragging, right?

    Haven't tried the compression check yet but I pulled the plug on the cylinder that had the leaky injector seal and it was pretty cruddy. I cleaned it up as well as I could with a wire brush and put...

    How much is it supposed to drop off when you pull a plug wire? I didn't notice a huge difference between any of them but it fluctuates at idle anyway.

    I changed the sensor and the ground check still reads around 52. Weird. The normal dwell swing got a little better, around 33-59. Still think I'm hearing the misfire. I did replace all the injector...

    Thanks, guys. The sensor has about 24,000 miles on it. It didn't look super cruddy when I pulled it but maybe it's time.

    I'm using a Centech digital meter, on the 4 cyl scale. As I said, the other...

    Running the checks on this list while attempting to root out a misfire. The normal operations test swings wide (28-60) and the test with the o2 sensor grounded consistently reads 49 instead...

    Oh, there was a thread on a Facebook group (DeLorean Fanatics?) about that a couple years ago. 200 incredulous comments later, the dude admitted he was just trolling. :rolleyes1:

    Last time he said your emails had been getting stuck in his spam filter. You have his cell phone number, right? I'd try giving him a call if you haven't recently.

    I've never had all of them in the car at once but I've had two of them in the big carrier and they fit in the front seat just fine. I marveled at how much easier it was to get it in and out of this...
