Wildcat 21x, Lukey LPH 561 and pacemaker comp 4480's have 1.5in(38mm) primarys. This is the primary pipe size you want!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Lukey's also have a nice secondary pipe size of 41mm.

Steer away from the pacies 4499 that have 41mm primarys(only notice high rpm power gain)and a huge 48mm secondary. Trust me i fitted them and wasn't happy with the performance down low.


The Wildcat 21X and Lukey should cost around $350 fully installed at carline. And the pacemaker comp 4480's should be around $500-$550.

cheers.

The quality of the Wildcats are no where as good as the Pacie's but for the price you cant go wrong. I ended up pulling mine apart where the primary collectors join the secondary pipes, you could see a fair bit of the secondary pipe protuding into the primary collector when you looked into the O2 sensor hole.

Although mandrel bends are better, would that be a deterence to buying the wildcats or they still pretty good in performance wise?

i went from a set of wildcats to the cheaper of th two pacemaker types, there is a slight difference in power, but not worth the extra $$$. On the other hand the pacies look better and are much better made.

For the $$$ youve mentioned, go the secondhand wildcats, just make sure they arent cracked or anything like that
