Hey everyone,

ive been told i can't put extractors on my AU because of the LPG system, is this true or not. Want a sweeter sound! got the 2 and half red back will it sound better with extractors?

Thanks

Hi mate. I have pacemakers on mine. Depending on where the system is installed there may be a heat issue, however nothing a heat shield can't fix. Cheers

I think you can have 4499's no drama, but 4480's are not for factory fitted LPG systems.

You can definitely do 4499's, but I haven't heard of anyone successfully doing 4480's with gas.

yes sounds good. i fitted mine before the lpg system, but plans changed for the car so it's now a daily driver. it has a full exhaust and cost 850 installed. not sure how much the extractors would be at a stand alone price. i do recommend however getting a few quotes, as prices seemed to vary greatly between places. cheers.

I had quotes for $50 or so to modify the car to line up with the extractors. Fitting I did myself.

They can be found secondhand for $200-$300, or I think they're about $400 or so new plus installatino.

Why would you want to fit extractors onto an ex cab with LPG??
