Cam or Extractors?
I have a question, currently my EF Fairmont just has 2.5" cat back single muffler exhaust, tickford snorkel and pod filter in factory air box. My next upgrade im lookin to spend in the vicinity of $300, and wondering what I should do next out of cam or extractors. From what I can gather, a cam will give best results when combined with extractors, but on a one or the other basis, am un decided. If I fit the cam first (next step), would I recieve better gains than if i just fit extractors? Eventually I hope to get extractors, however i just want to know what would be best next. The car has 185,000kms on it, and I was wondering how much a new set of lifters would be, and and how worth while it would be as the get pretty noisy at start up now, and sometimes during running.
Dan (Walky), didn't you do cam first in your car, and extractors are coming later? how did you find the difference?
