Such an involved job is not for the faint of heart. The stainless steel body of the DMC-12 may very well be resistant to rust and sun damage, but just try and get deep scratches out if you're a bit reckless with an engine hoist. We'll reserve a packet of Kleenex wipes in the event of this most unfortunate circumstance. The entire rear clip and bumper needed to be removed in order to ensure nothing was scratched or damaged as the old engine was removed.
The engine is due to be paired with a five-speed UN1-369 manual transmission mated together with a custom mounting adapter. The front grille and headlight assembly have also been removed, but what's in store for that end of the car is currently known only to its creator, LED high beams, anyone?
The DeLorean is the kind of car that modders don't mind breaking into in order to make it more powerful. Being that its lack of power was the final nail in the coffin of the company, it makes all the sense in the world. Best of luck to Reisch Engineering in their project.
