In summer and fall of 1999, Bob Brandys of the Chicago Area tested several DeLoreans on a Chassis Dynomometer (i.e. Dyno) to really see what happens when you start modifying DeLoreans in comparison to stock ones. Here are the results. More testing is planned including a twin-turbo car and an improved ignition system.
This is a measurment AT THE REAR WHEELS, not the flywheel as commonly quoted by manufacturers. Therefore the loss of energy through the transmission is reflected in these measurements.
The cars tested were:
Stock Manual Transmission
Stock Automatic Transmission
Single BAE Turbocharger Manual Transmission
Single Vortech Supercharger Manual Transmission
Engine conversion to Rover (Buick) V-8 with Automatic
