    Thank you! I suppose that stuff is over 15 years old now. I believe the amp has a tiny power draw when the car is off, I'm not sure if that's normal or not but I can't replace it because the amp is NLA. I would have to get a new surround board made if I got a different amp. Funny thing is I don't listen to the stereo that much. I kind of like to be aware of the car, engine, road noise, others around me.... driving in silence and being engaged is much more relaxing. I would use it more often on longer road trips. Need to get out more! Probably KY Bourbon Trail next spring.

    What DeLorean did you get where you can use the word "silence"?

    Well, I guess it's a dull roar that you get used to! I have the DPI spec exhaust and honestly it's not that loud inside the cabin while driving. I think my old Stage 1 with Magnaflow muffer was louder. Not complaining though.

    Always wanted to visit that area, specifically that route and all the stops :-)

    I'm in the process of fitting some aluminized heat sheathing over my red positive cables in the engine bay. I had already replaced some of them with 4 gauge stranded copper made-in-USA welding cable with terminals attached with a pneumatic crimper. No issues all year however I want make sure they are protected since they do run close to my passenger side header. The cable that runs from the bulkhead connector to the alternator runs under the starter so that was the first one I wanted to cover up.

    I bought 1/2" ID DEI heat sheath (not the velcro type) and it was just right to run the wire with straight terminals though, however for the jump start post, which is the next most vulnerable wire, I need to order 1.25" ID sheathing so that it can slip over the flag terminals - I don't have any way to add new terminals of that type so I'll just use a bit bigger sheath. Thanks to Rodolfo for the idea and the part recommendations!

    My VIN:    897 5 spd,

    Rebuilt the WUR/CPR and now the car runs SOOOOO much better for the first minutes. I am no longer fogging the neighborhood for mosquitoes until it warms up.

    If you should try this, take note that the eBay rebuild kit instructions leaves out a very important detail (no mention of it). That being to NOT lose the VERY SMALL cup the pin sits in when removing the round pressure plate (the cup is in the center of the plate). I didn't notice the part during disassembly but did recall hearing a "tick" (I thought the "tick" was from the rivet removed during disassembly). When putting it back together, after getting over the panic/cussing caused by the missing tiny unique, unobtanium part, I went back to where I heard the "tick" and there it was on the garage floor. Should you lose yours, I suspect that buying any model and the cheapest WUR/CPR and disassemble for that part. I suspect it is the same. No guarantee.

    FWIW ... the FrankenCIS looks interesting in either the WUR replacement or as a total system controller option.

    Do you have any pics of your rebuild?
