The only extractors that will properly fit the GT40 heads or after-market alloy heads on an E series falcon is factory ELGT (also fitted to EL/XH series II XR8) or Defilippo's as they were designed for GT40 heads.

You can use run use normal after-market E series extractors with GT40's but it's a total b**ch having to drop them off to change the plugs and they always melt the HT leads due the angle of the plugs in the head. They still fit; its just not ideal and you have high failure rate on the HT leads.

AU extractors are a no go on an E series V8 falcons.

I beg to differ on the issue of burning leads.
The solution had been kevlar heat sleeves that slide over the spark plug boot and prevent heat from affecting the leads at all. I've been running them for years now and I'm still on the same set of ICE leads too.

Just fitted a set myself to the 5.8, No more issues with melted leads at this stage.

If you are going to get the Trick flow heads. Get the Trick Flow Street Heat, or Track Heat combo. You get heads, stage 1 cam and intake manifolds. With the way your dollar is at the moment, it's pretty good buying.

No. They are procomp, not even worthy of small boat anchors.

Buy them if you want to find out the hard way though :P

They couldn't even pass for boat anchors could they? I thought they were so porous and poorly cast that there is probably enough air pockets in them to make them float :lol:


You are probably right Ash, infact you could maybe tie some rope to the end and use one as a loofah in the bath

Hey mate dunno if you are still looking but i i have a set of AFR 165's and a 2040 crane cam and the combo is damn good in my opinion. Well worth looking into if you don't end up going with the trickflows
