    Several feet of tubing should be enough to eliminate any excess heat. Out of curiosity, have you accounted for the two 200F coolant pipes that run right next to the fuel cell?

    Is there also a...

    Negative. It is indeed a C4 only part (NOT the same as the F-Body), but it isn't limited to the ZR-1. GM *did* apparently have a production change at one point that limited it's use. The C4...

    What can I say? I hate car buying and I'm cheap. Not to mention that as much as I love my DeLorean, and it is a literal dream car that I managed to own, it's also a used car to me that I'm already...

    Agreed. Once you get past a certain point, you know what the car needs to keep it running, so you lose the anxiety about breakdowns (and warranties with modern cars). The perception of the DeLorean...

    It's not a lack of vision, bur rather a question of practicality. Could you develop such a system for swapping batteries? Certainly. Would it be viable however? Probably not. There are just too many...

    Unless it's a purpose-built service vehicle, swappable battery packs will most likely never happen. EVs are designed to either have the batteries buried as deep as possible for cargo capacity, or...

    I disagree on that. It's a completely fair point given Toyota's approach. Toyota has integrated EV drivetrains into multiple platforms. Those platforms are in turn modular with various configurations...

    I can't argue with the fact that people would be responsible for putting themselves into these scenarios. But that doesn't mean that they still won't happen.

    Most mountain trails are not straight...

    The problem isn't that manufacturers haven't coordinated together on a single system, it's that they can't commit to their own platforms. Toyota did a great job with the Prius where they first...

    Agreed. It'll definitely grow from commuting to certain levels of interstate travel, but there are somethings that EVs just can't do. I can't wait for the first story of a Tesla truck that dies out...

    Petroleum fuels aren't going anywhere any time soon. Particularly as far as the government is concerned. ICE vehicles contribute far too much in fuel taxes to be outlawed anytime soon. Let alone the...

    Why in the hell didn't you just start the conversation like this instead?!

    Example: Interiors are easy, particularly the seats. If you don't want off the shelf leather skins from a vendor, any...

    Yup. People who are serious about ownership take a completely different path than this.




    Hell, can we even call them ghosts now? Perhaps they're non-binary interdenominational entities that...

    It is matter of perception though, I suppose. The triangle is the rule of thumb, but in order to complete a triangle geometrically, no matter which type, all three sides must be touching. Much akin...

    I agree. Looking at the engine as-is in pure stock form, we have the visual error of a hunting idle speed that deviates more than 50 RPMs from the mean, which manifests itself as continued severe...

    You know there are two main rights of passage for every DeLorean owner: working in the Valley of Death, and reading my posts until the end.

    Doesn't matter what I say though. Or anyone else for...

    Long story short, you are not classic car owner material. I'm sorry, but that's just the truth from what I've read. Can that change for you? I don''t know. But at this stage of the game, I wouldn't...

    UGH! I despise the tetrahedron model!

    If the values of the individual components are sufficient enough to induce oxidation, that in and of itself should be considered the chain reaction which...

    I can dig it. What I was doing previously was breaking down the individual values of the unique butterflies into a total sum for Throttle. Just as I was also doing for the idle screws. The reason...

    n should be the sum of all air passing through the metering plate to mechanically influence the flow of fuel, regardless if which path it takes to final destination. Add up the sums of the throttle...

    NOTE: If you're intimidated by all of this math, or simply don't care about these formulas, that's fine. But please skip down to the last paragraph.

    We could go down an entire rabbit hole here...

    Don't forget to lubricate the inside of the cable sheath, and adjust the play on the cable once the new handle is installed so that you don't preload the bellcrank. Otherwise it can cause the locks...

    No, you're absolutely right. Both on the function, as well as the formula being incorrect.

    I was counting upon the ISM subtracting CFM from it's metering due to the brass screws being opened....

    No man, I love conversations like this. It's fun to talk of theories, and likewise just discover new things. I've been wrong before about some things, and I'll be wrong again, but I learn and enjoy...

    BINGO!

    As mentioned, that hose from the evap canister is for the purge line. It not only purges the vapors collected whilst the vehicle is parked, but it also prevents excess vapor pressures from...
