Subject: Re: Bosch Alternator Swap

Kenneth,  14.5 or 14.4 volts is normal output setting for most alternator 
regulators manufactures.  At 15 volt you would boil the battery and no 
telling what else would happen to other electronics in the car. Remember, 
when your above 12.66 volts your running on the alternator voltage. I have 
built alternators with adjustable external regulators which would give the 
customer what ever they wanted on the gauge but the battery smell gets pretty 
strong in the car fom boiling. 
To my knowledge, Bosch didn't make a replacement and if they did it would be 
the original current output as the Motorola ( low ).

<< Original Motorola is outputting 14.5  .5 less then it should  
 When under heavy load (a/c radio, lights) volt meter is in the red  
 As well housing is cracked  
 I would like to replace the alternator with something common . BUT GOOD!  
 Thinking along the lines of BOSCH since so much else of the car is from
 bosch.  Just looking for suggestions and perhaps cross references

If you want the complete kit, the Island Twin Turbo will have 
everything you need. Typicly, 2 IHI RHB-5 chargers are used on the 
DeLorean. If you wanted to build everything custom, then I suppose 
that you could pick up a couple of these from the junkyard, and then 
pay to have them rebuilt. From what I've seen, these are usually used 
1 to a I-4 motor. So with 2 for a V-6, it's easy to see where the 
extra pep comes from.

Neverminding the custom exhaust and various piping that the car will 
need, you will also need to complete a fairly large range of internal 
work to the engine. Yes, I know that you can simply bolt many of 
these kits on, but for the $ you're going to pay, you'll want to 
extract as much performance as possible from the turbos. Which at the 
every least can mean lowering the compression ratio. And you'll be 
buying higher octane gas from there on out.

The Legend turbo design that was commissioned by DMC is IMO the best 
implementation that I've ever seen for the DeLorean. Internals were 
reworked, it had dual intercoolers, etc... So it's no wonder that it 
was estimated to cost the buyer an extra $8K. And that was 1981 
dollars! Th Island kit is ok, but isn't one that I would choose. No 
intercoolers, and far more piping than the Legend. So on that note, 
when I do save up enough to increase my engine power, I'm probably 
just going to stick with the non-aspirated. That is of course unless 
someone has a real legend engine that they would like to part with at 
that time! :)
