just wondering if anyone has had hurricane headers fitted to their car?
Seems like everyone goes for paceys but i just wanted to see how these compare.

iv got pacemaker 4499 big shock hey.
from what iv been told hurricane are made by lukey.
there ment to be pretty good but i dont trust lukey so it personal preferents.
there is also advanced headers which a fair few people have and Genie with are a bit pricier.
they will all do basiclly the same job its just how much ya wana pay.

i actually had a look at liverpool exhaust (well I actually worked there 6 yrs ago) and they are the ones which actually manufacture Hurricane headers. They do it all from start to finish on site.
Im just not sure how theirs compare to paceys and difilipo's.

Their design is a bit different from the Pacey's....they got a smaller primary (1.5" vs 1.625"), and a larger collector (2.5" vs 2.25").

The T3 5.6L guys that are still running the std heads love them.

They are made by Liverpool Exhaust.

Liverpool fitted mine (Hurricane). They modded a couple of pipes to fit em in my engine bay.

2 1/2" collectors into single 3". Sounds great as ud expect from any car thats had exhaust done i suppose. No complaints.

Dont know if they were s**t me but they told me that they compared pacies to hurricane on dyno and hurricanes made more power and torque. Of course they coulda been s**t me if they make them.

I also had mine ceramic coated. Good job and also by far the cheapest i could find for quality of work that was done!

just rang them up and they quoted me $1300 for headers and high flow cats. $770 for just headers fitted and standard cats modded to fit.
I have never had good experiences with high flow cats. they never seemed to do anything for my vehicles in the past (keeping in mind that i had I6's and this is my first v8).
What do you guys think? high flow cats or stick with standard?

ok fellas. i ended up getting the Hurricane headers and high flow cats installed. Sounds alot more like a V8 now, nice and deep. I could also notice a bit of extra torque once i get around 2500-3000rpm.
Feels good :twisted:

unfortunately no. i was around the area so i just got it done then. If i wanted them ceramic coated then id have to wait.
im happy with the headers and cats. can feel the difference and the sound is great!
