What're the best extractors for the biggest rumble and performance gain for my EL falcon?

I know there are a few different brands and models, but what do you suggest / use?

Basically what's top of the range?


Thanks!

Bry,
The lukeys are also really good for down-low torque due to their design. I picked up a heap 1k-2.5k rpm

Shorter runner design tends to do that...
Also, to the OP, choose extractors based on what you want.
Essentially:
- Higher end power = look for longer length primaries and secondaries
- Low to mid power = look for shorter length primaries and secondaries

There is no best set off the shelf. The best would be custom made for your car. I have Pacemaker 4480's with a 3" outlet fitted to my NC.

I got 4480's with 100cpi cat for my EF, slight improvement in top end and the exhaust note sounds like a vacume cleaner now. But apart from that the motor revs so much smoother than before.
