Overpriced? Or a worthy mod?

& If It is worth doing, which do you think I should get. ... 4176486967

VS ... 4176509e2b

I will also be ordering the X Large snorkel off another seller,
Is there anything else you suggest doing Air intake wise?

Secondly, I have a 2.5" Lukey Exhaust, Hollow Cat, not by choice, due to old age and previous history, no extractors.

What cat do you recommend? Victoria apparently requires 200CPI? If im not mistaken? Im after Long life, plenty of flow.

& I've decided I'll also be adding extractors at the same time as replacing the cat, Pacemakers seem to be the go, I don't really care for top speed, but I do want something that's going to benefit me for hard acceleration, as I do like to give it a poke in the guts fairly often.

Any recommendation on extractor brand & type?

If it's any help. the only current mods are 2.5" Lukey & 3.45 Diff gears, otherwise Bog stock au

Possible future mods are mild cam and a shiftkit. we'll see how I go after the breathing side of things are done



Current Ride: AU2 Fairmont

The looks: Ghia Interior, MTX Sound System

The Goods: Lukey 2.5 Zorst, 3.45 LSD

Victoria requires a standard cat. Anything high flow is illegal due to them not really even doing their job. I did have a 200cpi on my EB. Just hoped I never got pulled up for it

If you are going to buy one of those intakes get the one that is starting at $80, you dont want a intake with a sharp bend at all.



EL Futura: CVE head, Wolf V500, ICE Ignition and Coil, 36lb injectors, Walbro 255lb, Paci comps, 3" exhaust, T5, Harrop Truetrac with 3.9s. Now with 198.9rwkw, (~185rwkw and 13.80 @99.1mph) with more power to come

Go the First intake, better flow withoutvthe sharp bends.

Get a cat fitted, 200cpi will be fine.

Fit extractors as well, you will find it worth it with the intake, 200cpi Cat and 2.5" Exhaust.
