    Fair Price for Stage 3 Clean Delorean.

    Hey guys...I'm the guy who's working on trading that 2017 Silverado for a Delorean. I found a guy willing to trade. He has a super clean Delorean with 97k miles and the stage 3 crate engine only has 37k miles. It's really clean and hes put a lot of time into it. I'm waiting on confirmation from DMC to check out the history of the vehicle. What's a fair deal for my truck plus his delorean. Obviously I'm asking for some cash back. And if it's truly in the condition he says how long would it last as a daily driver if well maintained? Thanks a lot. I'm new here so if I broke any posting rules forgive me.

    Stage 3 engines are stock internal prvs with a non charge cooled super charger, k jet and an extra injector. It's like a blow torch in the combustion chamber. Surprised it lasted 37k. If you are planning on a delorean being your only car I would reconsider this move.

    If you post a engine picture we could better advise. No such thing as a stage 3 twin turbo.

    Wow, that looks like a nice car. Pictures of the engine (and specs on whether it is a Stage 2 or 3?), and the frame would be helpful to assign a ballpark value.

    So far from just what I see here, it's at least north of 40K (subject to more information).

    Cheers,

    Based on that invoice, it was a stock OEM Engine. Not a Stage anything.

    True...he takes forever to respond to messages. Hes an older gentleman so that's understandable. It's a twin turbo v6 volvo. Hes put a lot of work into the car and when I find out exactly what engine it is yall will be the first to know. I do know that it was a brand new 0 mile crate engine that now has 37k miles now.
