i have been ringing around to get some prices on getting extractors and a 2.5 inch exhaust fitted to my eb falcon. i was wondering if any one with hurricane headers has any feed back on them.
thanks

Hey,

My mate had them on his EF xr6. They are really just a cheaper copy of pacemakers. They look the same and are painted the same. Apparently they are just as good as pacies.

id probably go the same way, the lukey has the better note IMO, and id get the comp extractors, which are a different style to the hurricanes... hurricanes are similar to the other pacemaker model which are still good, but the word is that the comps are best (cant remember the model number), it all depends on how much you can get the hurricane system for, i payed 950 about 2 years ago, full system installed including headers, cat, and 2 tips... but if i had done my research previously i would have went the comps...

also noticed mine have a bit of surface rust towards the cat..this is after a re-paint with high temp paint as well..For now they are fine, can't see the need to upgrade now..but as said above if i had the choice i'd definitely go the pacemakers

Oh and i also love the noise my system makes..doesn't sound like every other i6 falcon ..the two mufflers make a big difference..

If i can get a decent recording ill post it here in the future :)
