Hey guys

Got extractors installed yesturday, found out he installed the 4499's
when i specifically wanted the 4480's. He knows this and the way things look
he will change them to the 4480's no extra charge.

So, should i keep the 4490's or go the 4480's ..... ????

I have a 5sp EL xr6, and in the future looking to install a Rspec3 or 2 cam or similar

Thanks.

4480s have better low end torque then 4499s i think? and are better all round on all revs?

4499's produce more power down low where as the 4480's produce power higher in the rev range. but if you have a reletivly big cam the go the 4480's

if you paid for 4480's by all means change them!

if you paid for 4499's and are happy with the power/combo keep them

I've 4499's and I seem to make pretty good power and I'm plenty happy with em!
but most ppl say the 4480's are s**t better.

pro's + cons with both.

but then again, if they 'f%&ked up with you once... do you want them butchering again for free?!

but i paid for and wanted the 4480's... and i think i will get them swaped over.

just thought while i had the chance to choose, I wanted to see what ppl thought, specially since im after a cam in the future.

4480's no question.
Cause you have either paid for 4480s and only got 4499s, or you will be getting 4480s for the price of 4499s.
