DeLorean ‘unique’ Loud V8 Style Exhaust For Sale from VIN 5255

It’s a very sad day on one hand that this exhaust is to be sold but it's only for sale as no longer required due to the Legacy3 conversion. It also means another enthusiast can enjoy the design on their car :D

The Photos below show how it looked when fabricated from new in 2006. Apart from the flanges (the flat parts that are on the ends of the tubing) it is stainless throughout. Due to the unique header design it creates a much deeper V8 like rumble compared to the more Ferrari like rasp of the other more conventional designs. The 3.5” tailpipes were my preference at the time but you could fit whatever shape, size of back boxes to suit your taste.

New in 2006

I’m pricing this now nearly twelve year old system for £280 and this includes a new gasket/stud kit for free. The price is based on that you could weld up some of the cracks which are due to metal fatigue (due to age/heat/cooling) but my recommendation would be to give this to a fabricator, with your car and have it replicated with fresh metal. It’s a lot easier and cheaper to copy then to design from scratch.

Removed January 2018

Please note, this system would need a slight redesign for the bridging pipe (which joins the two separate banks) if to be installed to an automatic DeLorean. Or you could dispense with the bridging part all together as a system this short doesn’t really need it.

This system doesn’t incorporate catalytic converters which aren’t a legal requirement in the UK for cars registered prior to 1992. If where you are requires them, then your new interpretation of the system could easily incorporate them.

Collection or courier to the Birmingham address would be to where it and the gasket/stud kit are currently based. Let me know here or email me if interested, I can ship anywhere in the world!

For those of you that would like a reminder as to how this system sounds here are some clips:-

The exhaust helped log figures of 148.7 HP (instead of the stock 130 HP) at the engine (Max Torque 186.8 FtLb) / 115.7 HP at the wheels

I tried to beat a known oil slip on a bend… failed to get the back end back and also didn’t dip the clutch fast enough

The first generation of this unique style of exhaust system utilised the cast iron stock manifolds and wasn’t quite the same sound, this dates back to 2003

3:37 is my favourite part of the video

Heston Blumenthal stepping out of it (although CGI had provided an even bigger exhaust, and dry ice and strobing tail lights etc)
