    Would like to see more of these conversions. So many D owners have FI systems that have constant problems. Can't beat the simplicity of a carb.
    The DeLorean's PRV is a single overhead cam, not dual. One cam per head = single overhead.

    Clearly he added two more cams; that's why the increase in performance is real.

    The electric fuel pump I used was from O'Reilly & the part number is E16010. It is a basic universal fuel pump. It is mounted outside the boot with a 90 degree gradual bend pipe that will allow the gas to flow smoothly with no kinks. I also decided to use the ventilation gas pipe as the main fuel line. Then I used the stock return line as the ventilation line. That way it would be a simple hassle free conversion without messing with the fuel accumulator.

    I did not make any changes to the engine and cams. I just made the air intake manifold and tuned the carb to run and idle properly with great results. The design of the air intake may be very efficient with the Holley carb overall. I am happy that it all works after taking the whole engine apart and testing it with the carb with the very first try.
