Good Alternative Source of Power for My 90 SpaceCab

Postby QuantumRift » Sun Jan 06, 2013 6:31 pm

Thought I'd pick up one of these:

You have to get the basic unit first:

then upgrade with this unit (below) to eliminate the need for plutonium.

Says it only fits three model of DeLorean cars, however, I happened to have found a mod kit on an underground site for the unit to make it work with my 1990 Spacer's 2.6L engine and red original Japanese painted body. I think my tires are OK, so if my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you're gonna see some serious sh*t.

Well, kind of high, but the upside is that you will never need gasoline again.

And don't forget sky hooks. They are the most versitile tool a man own. They don't make new ones anymore but if you're lucky you find a good used one. I'd be glad to explain how to use one if anyone needs to know.

I don't think my c223 diesel powered 1985 Toyota mini truck will ever go 88mph, Flux Capacitor, Mr Fusion or no!
