i wouldn't buy them new, stick to the ones that we all know work, not worth stuffing around with your money.
but if you can get them cheap or second hand or soemthing go for it as theyre gunna be better than the stocko exhaust manifold.
also do a search as people have asked about them an high/hi-tech ones previously.

They arent bad extractors. Would stack up well against pacemaker 4499's but not as good as the 4480's IMO.

IMO they are s**t

I got some on my eb and they did f**k all.. they changed the sound till about 30km/h to a nicer note, after that it sounded worse and I didnt notice an absolute difference at all. Please dont get these, go the pacies or something that everybody knows work

my mate had them on his xf panel van, he never had a problem with them...performance wise prolly didnt get as much as the 4480's. but the advanced headers are normally considerably cheaper

they were definately considerably cheaper but just IMO they were s**t, if I went back I wouldnt get them. But hey, if u wanna get them give them a try, much cheaper and different cars perform differently.

Do you mean X-Force?
Never heard of 'X-Flow'?
Anyway, I've got X-Force extractors, they are thick wall stainless, tig welded.
Look good, seem to perform well...
Stainless gets all discoloured from the heat, number 6 primary has got some funky blue going on :P

i have advance headers. They do the job just fine. Im not chasing big HP so if u r go the tried and tested way. if ur just after more performance on a budget they r fine.
Those X-Force headers look good :)

No idea, I got recommended them by a local exhaust shop.
The brand 'X-Force' supposedly do alot of stainless turbo manifolds for imports.
Can't remember how much I paid for them now :?
From memory around the 500 mark?
