I just purchased these extractors off ebay as the ad said they were mandrel bent...

However, when they arrived, they turned out to be press bent!!!

They're still fantastic headers and flow tests have shown that there is a maximum 1% flow difference between mandrel bent and press bent headers when used normally. In other words... There's no difference!

There's no point in me keeping them as I've already got press bent headers and simply want mandrel bent ones because I'm so damn fussy.

They're brand new and retail for $550.

I'm asking what I payed for them... PRICE DROP $220. You can make offers but I know that they're worth at least this much...

The picture below is not the actualy headers but are basically the same design and colour. The wildcat headers are still wrapped in plastic and I don't really want to open them just to take a photo.

Just thought I'd clarify... The picture above is taken from an ad on ebay.

THESE ARE NOT THE TYPE/BRAND OF EXTRACTORS I AM SELLING!!!

Nor are they the type that I bought. The ones on ebay are crappy no-branders.

The extractors for sale here are Wildcat ones made by Genie.

I bought them off a guy privately who crashed his car before he got a chance to install them. I'm sure it was just an honest mistake. He probably wouldn't have even known the difference between the two types of bends!

I'm waiting on him to get back to me but I doubt I'll get a refund or anything...

kust thought id throw my 2 cents in. i have wildcat extractors on my ba. fantastic addition they are too, get better economy, and has lifted my power figures nicely. at that price well worth the buy. mine cost $450 fitted, and that was after some hard barganing and paying no questions asked cash.

Thanks mate.

They are great extractors from all reports. They're very similar to what I've currently got fitted and I can definately notice the power difference.

I'm surprised I can't get them to move!!!

Any offers?

Performance wise i think theyre good, dont see why they wouldnt be as good as 4499s, and after 12months use theres no surface rust, just a bit of paint flake around where I scratched em lol.

On topic - GL with your sale!
