    DeLorean Muffler: Inside View

    The muffler I butchered to prove a guru wrong is about to be recycled, so I've photographed it one last time for posterity (original photo is waiting for the Talk.com archives to be restored):

    I've still got #2508's unbutchered muffler if anyone wants it -- speak up soon or it will be recycled too.

    Really interesting. Seems like this would create a lot of backpressure. Must be super turbulant in there.

    What kind of setup is going in their places?

    Spec .01

    I pulled the engine out of #2508 to facilitate installation. Rusty little manifold studs are screaming "snap us off," which is exactly what I intend to do. Since I won't be using the crossover pipe (mating angles are different side to side), manifolds can be swapped and use all virgin mounting holes. I am seriously considering tapping them out 5/16-24 (virtually identical thread pitch as metric x1 -- very easy tapping) and using Grade 8 studs. McMaster sells nice ones that have 5/16-24 on one end and 5/16-18 on the other, which will be even easier to remove for future gasket replacement (coarse thread).

    Give Henninger a call or put it up on eBay. I think I saw a stock exhaust sell for something like $170 on eBay before. I pretty much gave mine to Henninger just to be nice. I think he restores and sells them.

    Too late -- I threw it in the scrap metal bin this morning.
