cheers...well I was planning on getting Pacemaker 4480s competition headers or the Hi-Tech ones...and the Hi-Tech ones seem to have smaller primaries and secondaries increasing bottom end torque.

Hey rushed which extractors are you using now or still using the Hi-Tech ones? If so what model number are you using and is it better up top or down low? cheers

They are the 4480's, designed for more bottom end torque. I have the 4499's on my ED, they seem to suit the work that my car has done to it (which i have no idea what that is) although, the 3.45:1 ratio and manual

that would be great...do they have a website or something? I just want to find out some more information on their other models. if not I'll just settle for 4480s which are supposedly down low...but then again someone is saying they are up top...so confusing.

what
$400 headers
$200 catback

$300 for labour, inc putting new flanges on the cat. ouch

seriosly, buy the bits, and do it yourself, with the money you save on some you can afford to get that high-flow cat. edit: and a slab or three, which sounds better?

I remember when you could get a whole exhaust system, extractors, 2&1/2", for under $500. That was Genie's.

SO, the 4480's are the bottom end-ish pacie header? Cool, I'll keep that in mind.

I've also been told that the Walker (Lukey) Motivator Extractor is a reasonable mid range kind of extractor that works pretty well for non lumpy cam cars. Not too sure bout that tho.

I'll be looking at a redback catback sometime soon. Got a quote of just under 500 bucks deom Carline. Before you scream rip off, this is including a straight thru main muffler and also full rear muffler. I wanna keep my machine stealth. And avoid headaches :lol:

My Wagon used to run this setup, was very quiet, not alot louder then stock, no one beleived it had a 2 1/2" Exhaust until they looked under it.. Still didn't help me getting a defect notice for a leak :(

300 bux for labour :shock: that's a bit dear :S...I am getting my extractors and hi-flow cat in for 150 with new bolts and flanges welded on the hi-flow cat. Though not happening until I get the hi-tech extractors and come back from QLD.
