    I am sorry I don't. But in my taste, it's too loud. Maybe, I will eventually change those two long mufflers and put one twin in /twin out regular muffler at one time. It's the acceleration that is loud. When it's at iddle or at cruising speed, it's quite ok.

    It's just a matter of personnal taste. I like it very quiet from inside. But I do like the sound of muscle-car for sure...but maybe as an observer.

    I also put sound deafening of a similar type as the very popular one _ the name escape me right now... must be all that aluminium...

    Yeah, mine is very loud from the interior (a little too loud). However, it sounds great from the exterior.

    Then, just yesterday, I had that set up changed, to a single muffler (a little smaller than the original one) And it's much better, albeit still throatty. Stephane, from Federal Muffler is a very patient and calm person. He is also quite perfectionnist at putting together an ideal muffler setup. I had my crankshaft pulley and seal changed at the same time _ since mine was wobbly somewhat.

    Crank Seal

    Hey Victor, I know it's been a while since this thread was discussed, but I'm getting my crank seal replaced on my DeLorean very soon and noticed you had the same seal changed back when you did the exhaust redo. Do you remember how long, or how many hours they charged for replacing that seal? I just want to keep the shop that will be doing mine honest!

    I stopped by a different shop about doing the job and they started talking about taking out the engine to do the work....Let's just stay I started walking out very quickly. I won't be touching that place with a 10ft pole!!
