    I figured I'd get the ignorance out of the way lol. I can't wait to see this car in person.

    You may not know how much fun it is to drive a 400 HP + Delorean----totally different car---would never go back to 130 HP.

    I've been for a ride in a 400hp DeLorean. It is a completely different car.

    I helped with this conversion at the very beginning (removing the PRV and test fitting the LS) and have been following the progress. I'm sure it's a great car.

    My Delorean has upgraded cams and exhaust, but is still running the PRV. If I didn't get my high horsepower fix out of my Corvettes and my Buick, I'd probably be doing an LS swap to my DeLorean.

    I base the 410 HP on Eldebrocks top end package, which I have-- Includes aluminum heads, .303 cam, roller rockers, high rise intake, 650 carb, HEI ignition, headers. Eldebrocks dyno test with this setup is 410 HP(9:1 flat top pistons)---built my engine with domed forged pistons-11:1 comp)----also balanced assembly/blueprinted. Engine as built is 335 cu in. Got to be slightly more than the 410 HP Eldebrock standard package. I have about 3000 miles on the car since conversion ---lot of fun to drive now.
