roughly speaking, for some pacemaker headers and hi-flow cats worth for and EL XR8 fitted ? my guess is around the $1400 ? Should there be a decent gain on the stock EL 2 headers ?

The pacemakers should cost around $600, cats arer about $200-250ea and fitting would be $200 so $12-1400 would be realistic. Any yes, you should see decent gains over the EL2 headers.

is there anybody on here with svo headers? I saw some stainless SVO headers with stainless cats for $925 and just wandering how they flow, i know most people go with pacemakers but just wandering if SVO is just as good?

Well I'd do it but the cars not running atm.

The comps sound good. (even better with a stage 3 cam!)

Really depends on other mods etc but here is one of my dyno runs with pacmakers, 3" exhaust, cam, heads, intake etc

The SVO headers are badged HM headers, so they should be decent quality and flow quite well. IMO the pacemakers are probably a bit better in design.

i fitted the pacemakers i picked up from ebay 2day and it sounds very throaty, espeacially is 2nd gear giving it some stick. id go for paccies as they're relatively cheap.

I am currently running Genies, standard cats, 2 1/2 " exhaust, lukey ultraflow muffler with the resonator removed.

I am looking at buying new cats. Can anyone recommend some nice flowing ones, or know of 2nd hand ones ? IE, VY, BA XR8 or something that would fit ??

Thanks guys

Steve
