    [Wanted] WTB: parking /hand brake lever

    My project car is missing the complete parking brake assembly.

    Was it designed for the Delorean, or did they source it from a different car?

    Regardless, I'd like to buy one.

    Pardon my ignorance, but where can I find more info on this Euro exhaust? Is it the same as the UK exhaust? Is it just a muffler or does it have headers?
    Thanks

    [Engine] Stage 1 - Worth it?

    How do the spec 1 and the stage 1 compare to the system from Special T Auto? Definitely easier on the wallet.

    I just got one of those Volvo engines for literally free. Haven't had the opportunity to get a proper look at it yet, but hopefully there are parts on it that can be used to my benefit.

    [Engine] Dmc vs Volvo engine

    Hi!

    The euro spec Volvo engine of the era is rated at 156 or 160 horsepower (sources vary).

    What exactly is different?

    Cams? Exhaust? CR?
