Im pretty sure the 4480's are for EA-AU and the BA have a different series. What ever the competion model number is for the BA 6, go for them.

Looks to be the 4495 is the competition, go for those extractors you wont be dissapointed

4495's are the way to go, according to the people @ bseries.com.au

I'm looking at getting them at the moment, not sure if i want to get them heat coated yet though. Might not, kinda brings the cost of them to $800.

Like I always say, headers/exhaust will make a difference by themselves but will be a power multiplier to all the other mods you do. If you decide on a whole heap of other mods and still have the stock zorst system, then dont expect too much power as your engine will be choking.

I was speaking to Jim mock and he was telling me he has to heat coat the BA extractors because the pipes are really close to the heater hose. Not sure if it would make a big difference, but he said he didn't want to take a chance incase it got to hot.

Note, In most cases the insurance companies will sting you for two mods.
ie:
1: Extractors
2: Exhaust

Might be something to concider before hand

I agree...though the flanges and maybe piping may need modifying to suit...

or just get an AU catalytic converter, supposedly they work well.
