    Oh man, talk about a blast from the past. This is why I wish the old .com archives still existed. That thread was fantastic. It was dubbed the Fast and the Furious DeLorean right? It had a green and...

    If it's that important to you, you could play around with it yourself. Wilwood's line of compact remote reservoir master cylinders can be made to fit the DeLorean's clutch system fairly easily.

    The pedal return spring and bushings have little to nothing to do with the weight of the clutch pedal. The pedal weight is a function of the diaphragm spring on the clutch pressure plate, and the...

    Very sorry to hear about your father. I remember multiple threads and conversations with him.

    I agree with MrChocky's sentiment on pricing. I'm sure there are going to be many prospective buyers...

    For what it's worth, they do make tools to assist with the installation. I have one of these and used it recently to install 10 new studs. Worked great every time. Its essentially a spacer with a...

    What gearbox is that? Curious why it's got a speedo gear on it.

    Have you disassembled the gearbox yet and inspected the shaft? I'd almost bet money that your problem is not the main shaft but...

    I'm going to take a wild guess and say.... yes - 5X the stock hp is a little bit louder.


    Congrats Josh, this is a thing of beauty. Also the commitment to a clean engine bay continues to impress....

    Forgive me Dave, but how did you win a 1st Place DeLorean Marque Concours in 1998, when based on the DeLorean Marque Concours history, it was not established until 1999?...

    I agree with this sentiment.

    I prepped Ken's car for the DCS '08 concours judging because Ken was too busy (running the entire show), and I spent hours and hours detailing every little thing. The...

    I dont think there's any question that you're top of the list. It does seem like you'd be the first phone call even just for initial thoughts. A central element of the LS swaps from the beginning has...

    Always your luck?? You were the first person to reply on this thread 4 years ago. Kind of feels like you've had more than just one opportunity to get one in grey :wink:

    In this community this is the generally accepted guide for defining a concours car. A 400 point car is 100% concours. Any deduction is...

    Having the tool kit is a requirement for concours judging. My car doesn't have one; however, I've prepared two cars for concours judging in the past and both had them. Granted I'm not sure whether or...

    I was about to mention this. These already exist on the sides of the body tub and have been used in this location. The 3D printed cap is a good idea, but will be hard to compete.

    This isn't clear to me; are you saying you tested cylinder 6 with no o-ring on the compression tester?

    John often put Special T stickers over original part numbers; try taking the sticker off and maybe you'll find a number underneath. The 100110ST number is almost certainly a number internal to John's...

    Seeing as I've worked with Josh on some of these parts for the last 6 years, I've got to come to defense on this. You have no idea what you're talking about. These swap parts are the most refined and...

    Don't overcomplicate this; pull the plugs, stick the compression tester into the hole, and crank the engine.
