so i just put a bid on the motivators, as soon as i do i get an automatic rebid by someone else who has now outbidded me
that's because you can enter a maximum bid.

Example:
Extractors are currently @ $100 and i am bidder 1, you are bidder 2. I have placed a bid of $100, but my MAX is $150.

You come along and put $120, you'll see my bid goes to the next acceptable incriment (probably $122.50)

This will happen until you put a bid 1 increment higher than my max bid...

make sense?

ahh i get it, i thought the seller was being a d***head and making it go up everytime a bid went on so he could rip the person off lol..

yeh i get it, thanks for explaining.

anyway, I have a set of lukeys lined up for 140 which i'll pick up soon. I know lukeys aren't the best but it has to outflow the standard manifold and i'm sure they're not gonna be too mucch of a restriction compared to say pacies on a 3.9 EA with just cam/zorst/intake mods.

cheers for the advice.

yeah i thought the same when i first used ebay lol
mate they will definitely be better than stock, as i say, if you can, watch the blokes to the change over and prepare to be shocked to just how crap the standard headers are

i am getting a set of hitek headers and matching high flow cat plus all gaskets for $675,,i will be installing them myself..

they are for low to mid range torque and better fuel economy,,,asking a question like this is just asking for trouble,as there is no number one set of extractors as each vehicle is different and different brands will work good on some and not on others.

its not in The average persons ability to experiment as the cost would be prohibitive,,so get what you can afford.

Nah, doubt it has anything to do with the oxy sensor...... I can run mine unplugged with no probs.
Either its a faulty sensor elsewhere, or you have a serious problem.
