    It will not unless custom spacers are made to connect the two and also have ports drilled for the k jet injectors.

    Search, there are pics

    Speaking of spacers, the a/c compressor's hoses won't clear the 3.0L oil filler without being raised slightly. Spacers and a longer serpentine belt are on the way.

    Engine runs

    Engine was tested for about an hour. Fine from idle to redline. Cooling fans didn't come on except when jumpered, so a new switch is in order. Also: wiring fault between ignition switch and starter motor.

    If you could find a way to make the factory kjet air cleaner work, or make some sort of air filter element that will duct over to the right pontoon, That would actually look pretty nice and clean.

    just throwing an idea out there, no need to get snooty

    Its nice to see your car operational again. A carburated 3.0 opens the possibility of this swap to people not interested in messing with efi.

    Was aiming for funny, not snooty. Sorry.

    #2613 isn't 100% operational and likely won't be for some time. Bill has done a lot of testing on the engine and it seems to run fine. So that's good news, at least.

    Although I'm excited at the prospect of having a running, driving DeLorean again, I'm trying to keep calm, because I know that while the car has been sitting a million other little things could have gone wrong, and we won't know about them until more testing is done. Right now, it doesn't even have exhaust...
