if you plan on going turbo charger then you'd have to get rid of the extractors anyways and get a custom exhaust manifold done, if you go super charger then you are fine really.

Also depends if you are running gas as well...if you do run gas then the 4480s (comps) won't fit, only 4499 fit. IF you are just running unleaded, then 4480s could have been better. Can you justify spending an extra 100 bucks or so for the little bit of power gain?

$100 for a power gain is justified because what else can you get for $100?

$100 aint that much almost the only reason people get extracters done is for power so why not spend the extra when you are after power any way...
