    What are you using instead?

    I'm so glad to see more people are starting to take the LS plunge! It answers all the problems the PRV presents. It's reliable; but parts are off the shelf, plentiful, and cheap if needed. Aftermarket support can't be matched. Easily modifiable for big power gains at a relatively small cost. Gobs of low-end torque. The engine is extremely compact and weighs about the same as a turbo or supercharged PRV. 3x the power of the PRV without the added mechanical complexity & heat of turbo or superchargers. Now if only a vendor would start specializing in LS swaps...

    That will never happen. The only problem with the PRV is owner neglect. You will never see a delorean specific vendor shoeing in Ls engines. Especially not DPI. Casting blocks and heads to my development specs. Pro PRV for life.

    Nailed it! Basically my reasoning behind the swap.

    Like Josh said I doubt a vendor would ever offer this engine as a swap. Or any non-prv engine really.
    However, if someone is interested in a set of mounts and an adapter plate I would certainly be able to help them out. Not any time soon though.

    I just wish I could put the factory original Chevy V8 that they all came with back in.

    I don't know who installed all these PRV V6's!

    I know it would never happen from you or any of the DMC-Texas affiliates, but it would be neat to see somebody like Eddie G start specializing in LS swaps.

    I love the direction you're taking the PRV in, by the way. You have my utmost respect for pushing the PRV into territory nobody else has dared to on this side of the pond. The Twin Press setup especially looks to be quite impressive. I guess I just wonder after an owner spends $30,000 on it, and pretty much none of the internal or external components are exchangeable with the stock B28F, and your shop is the only one who knows how it all goes together or will service it.... what exactly the benefits are over a swap like Josh is doing? I realize your components & craftsmanship are regarded as the best in the DeLorean community, by FAR. So I'm not denigrating what you're doing one iota. I guess I just worry about an already esoteric powertrain being pushed into the esoteric stratosphere.

    I really, really wish that people would stop calling the PRV unreliable.

    You're unreliable.

    This, I can not deny. In fact, I still owe you a shift isolation boot.
