hi guys !
ok i'll be able to buy my extractors in the next two weeks with more overtime at work coming.
i have my 100 cpsi high flow cat already ! then i just have to save for the 2.5 inch cat back sports xzorst.
$400.00.

my car at present is a 4ltr auto bog stock au.( with body kit )mmm
at xmas i will be getting my 3.71 lsd fitted. with future plans are for a head and cam package.no time soon!!!!

ok it's crunch time !

4499 's $ 495.00
4480's $ 495.00 + $ 300.00 for ceramic coating.
wich extractors should i purchase ! i am aware that the 4499's are better for low down torque
and the 4480's are for mid to high power range !

my main aim is to just to get that nice deep exhaust noise !thats it!
do i purchase the 4480's and put them on my stock motor!

or should i do what most people say and put the 4499's on ! apparently there is a few issues that i will suffer from putting the 4480 comps on my stock motor. need help! i dont want to purchase the wrong ones! only 2 weeks left till i purchase them. :shock:

I think u should buy ur gear from this guy as its cheaper but yeh it dosent look as good quality as pacemaker but cheaper and very similar design

http://www.dkne.com.au/ford-falcon-6cyl ... p-235.html

Also u can ask him to make them in a 38mm primamry so u get more bottem to mid end power and torque

A good question, depends on where you want your power, lower down or up top?

I have 4499's on my EB, stock internally, a AC delco cat from a VS commy, 2.5" system with one straight thru muffler & a red back 2.5" resonator at the rear. The note isn't what i'd call bad, but it's not what i'd call a great 6cyl note either.

A cam will fix that, giving the engine a much nicer note & even more power than i have right now.

Cheers

ToranaGuy

1) for $400 I hope the exhaust is staino not mild.
2) if your planning on a head and cam package get the 4480's saves putting them on later, I prefer JMM race series headers but thats just me.
3) if you want a deep note it will be all about muffler choice, every falcon I've heard with extractors has a rasp underneath the note of the exhaust.

My EB is a bit raspy.

For $400 i doubt the pipe is stainless. I was quoted $800 to make a stainless system for my mighty boy. :eek:

Cheers

I'd have thought you might have grown out of that by your age :D

It doesnt have to be loud to be fast 8-) a redback or similar system shoulnt set you back more than $300 fitted, or did the $400 include fitting the cat as well?

when the mrs pays no attention to ya' it makes you want to spend ya money on something else !something sleek and sexy!( that doesn't talk back )
with beautiful curves! that being my au!
i think they call it the mid life crisis! dont laugh ! it's gunna happen to you!
and just like the mrs this baby needs some major enhancements that only big $ can fix.
as for the xhorst yeah $ 400 is for fitting the cat and the xhorst straight through and including the lovely chrome tip wich i havent decided on yet !
i have the dirty big oval tip on now and she looks sweet. shh i think shee' s coming. :D

Before i fit the redback resonator up the rear, at idle my EB was reasonably polite, but when you provoked it to 3000rpm+, it woke the dead. :D That was fine until i was EPA'd. :oops:
