    The Tesla unit is a perfect match for the DeLorean. The longer mounting plate allows the unit to clear the fuel tank. Refer to my picture below.

    Pedal travel is definitely less than stock, but that is why I even did the swap.

    If you nail the pedal, yeah you can lock up. The Tesla 50-50 master performs way better than the factory master imo.

    For mounting, all I had to do is drill 4 new holes on the stock booster mounting bracket and bolt it on. Connection to pedal was achieved by buying a...

    I'll probably experiment, and do this as last resort.

    There will be always issues if itís the factory urethane fascia. In the hot sun, that fascia will warp. So itís probably the headlight bracket making those points.

    2.8 PRV is odd fire with traditional distributor. 3.0 PRV is even fire without traditional distributor.
