Bit of a n00bz0r question here...

Will fisting.. i mean fitting extractors and a better exhaust system influence my EF's fuel economy much? In a good way or bad way??
I'm just curious coz i'm looking at getting some and I'm just wondering if it's going to make my Petrol Piggy Bank look like this even more that it already does...

Comments and/or advice anyone??

Well in theory you will get further to a tank of fuel.... but who can remain light-footed when you can enjoy the new sounds :P

Yeah thats true to what most people have said... you will get better fuel economy but you will push the car more, because one you will have a better sound and two you will have more avaible power.

You'll definately drive harder as the car will feel nicer overall.. I love the sound as you let off from high revs and it burbles down. Weather is looking good now might have to go for a drive tonight!

Hi Yeah it is a good move can U resist the temptation lead foot
Also put a bigger air intake as the ef is too small and use a K&N
Pod filter .I myself have an SS bigmouth and K&N filter.Cheapest way is to get a v8 intake FTG sells it for $32.00.
Cheers
