ive booked my car in to get 4480 pacies fitted. so i have been flicking through the archives to see what other members have said about them. some r saying lossed torque and no difference in power until high up in the rev range. im to believe that smaller diametre but longer pipes give good low/mid torque which the comp series are, so whats the deal with these guys saying no difference in power. i dont want to blow $550!!!!!
so all out there with comments please reply. it will b very appreciated

cheers!!!

I dunno the part number but I fitted the comps and gain low down, and $550 sounds rich for pacies, I payed $400.

I love my pacies and got a noticeable diff in the upper rev range and still have great low down torque.

dude it depends on the car!

if u got a good engine thats been looked after the pacies will make a small but noticble diff

the gains from extractors are made when the rest of the exhaust is a done ie 2.5" mandrel bent system with high flow mufflers.

then when some intake/cam mods are made the engine can breath so much better!

10rwhp is all i gained ona full exhaust and extractors and that was on a higher reading dyno...
