    According to this article, the Electrogenic kit is $110,000: https://supercarblondie.com/delorean-road-ready-costs/

    Based on the one kit that does have a price on the website, my guess is that this would be priced at $40k. And I would assume maybe another $20k to get it swapped in for the PRV.

    The specs on the site indicate it should be the same power for the classic white and modern white.

    I would test the bulbs on a bench power supply with 12 volts and see what they're drawing for...

    I am pretty happy with the Speedbox.

    It seems to catch a GPS signal much faster than my hobby electronics (Adafruit) Back to the Future style GPS speedometer. The speedbox is also completely...

    I will definitely check there!

    I always ask before I try to fix something myself because there is so much experience here. I am super new to car work and I feel like half the time I come up with a...

    Thanks for the great writeup and video, CFI & DeLoreanTech!

    I just received a Speedbox and am in the process of installing it. If past experience holds, this 1 to 1.5 hour job should take me 3 to...

    I think I read that the DeLorean was initially planned to have a radial engine (though of course this could be urban legend as well). I think there are some helicopters that also use radial engines,...

    Per this document, it seems it is now legally established fact that the things hanging off the back of the BTTF car are "thrusters", and not vents like we all assumed. This explains how the car got...

    That was very informative Bill, thanks for making it. It's so much easier to understand when seeing it in 3D rather than the 2D pictures in the workshop manual.

    Thanks! My desire to remove it is mostly due to it being connected to the throttle cable. Given it was malfunctioning, I worried it was a safety risk. But this voltage quirk was uncovered as I began...
