    Delorean industries test pipes

    I have the Delorean Industries spec 1 exhaust system plus the Cams on my Delorean. I would like to remove the catalytic converter ( my part of Oregon does not do emission testing) my question is will these fit http://www.deloreanindustries.com/spec-i-exhaust/ ? it look like my cats only have 3 bolts to mate them up where the test pipe kit has 4. I know I would need two kits. will I have adjust the K jet if I change out the cats?
    Thank you in advance.
    If this will just cause me problems lets me know

    It's always best to just call or email DPI regarding these types of issues. However, the test pipe is for the stock system, not for their spec1. Call and ask for what you need (straight pipes to replace your catalytics). And - the oxygen sensor is before the catalytic converter so you shouldn't need to adjust anything at all.

    I have the exhaust system your thinking of putting on. It was put on by the po. I like that it has a little rumble to it but not loud enough to annoy the neighbors. Not a big surprise more cabin noise. You will get head turns on start up. When at car shows the other guys say what you want more attention. hehe. I have the original K jet and have to explain to some people the warm up of the D because they don't think it's running right.

    Thank for replies Iíll send Delorean industries an email for ordering. I just figured if I can do in Oregon I might as well while I can. Iíll keep my cats for when or if they make us do emissions testing.

    The pipes should up today they look and sound great I recommend them to anyone that can run them. it only took me about 40 minutes to the cats off and the straight pipes installed.
    I have not drove the car with them yet, we have about 4 inches of snow on the ground right now.
