does look like a decent buy becuz usualy extractors on their own are somewhere up at that price region, and ur gettin a high flow cat too they are like 300 at least on their own, soo actually quite a good buy in my opinion

The only thing that looks a bit sus about them is the position of the o2 sensor. Usually it is found at the end of all the pipes near where the cat bolts up. Not on these according to the pic.

Otherwise it looks like a good buy.

On the stock manifold the sensor will pick up flow from all cylinders & measure that, as it is mounted in the manifold right where the pipe runs down to the cat, with all exhaust flow passing by the sensor.

On the Ebay extractors the sensor will only measure 3 cylinders. Not the exhaust flow from all 6. That could cause issues.

Cheers

id rather buy these extractors instead as he can make the primary 38mm apon request for a little extra and get better bottem-mid end power and torque.

My extractors have the o2 sensory reading 3 pipes as well. I was a bit weary of it's position when i first purchased them after seeing the pacemaker's design which basically reads all 6 pipes. Seems to run alright though..

The JMM Race Series extractors (arguably the best off the shelf) only read 3 pipes as well so i guess it can't be that bad.

The JMM gear apprently works very well but for the money they ask is abit rich and the JMM primary pipe is 38mm, hence why i said buy them from the bloke i recommended as he can make them in 38mm apon request.

There is nothing wrong with reading 3 pipes, yeah, some extractors have them so it picks up all 6 pipes but if there is a difference in your first 3 pipes to the second 3 pipes, sorry but your motor will be running very poorly .... ...

Well i think they not only look good, but it looks as tho its a simple bolt on, rather weld some flanges on, and as 4 the oxy senser, u could just get a plug and drill out a thread futher down and wack it in there :)

my o2 senser on my custom extractors only picks up off 2 pipes and funs fine.
there full tuned length flow tested and that junk so the builder must have had some idea i guess.
(i got them 2nd hand)

Hi Mate

I bought this exact system from him for my BF Falcon, the guys name is Darren and he runs Dapto Exhaust. But yeah i got the extractors and high flow cat for 600bux, he installed them for an additional 60 bux :) so was a nice little road trip down from Sydney. They are hurricane brand as well, i then went back the next week and got the cat back part done, again all hurricane with some nice small straight through mufflers, sounds very nice once the engine is hot, did take a little while for it to carbon up and sound deep and throaty. This was the bloke who came up with the adapter because te BFs have dual O2 sensors so the MIL light will come on because of the high flow cat, im running this adapter and no light what so ever :) i have posted pics in another thread on here although can't find it at the moment.

Cheers

Phil
