Re: Extractors

depends how handy you are with the tools. Myself, I would prefer to pay someone else to do it, cause if anything happens I can blame them! Not the cheapest way but it is less hassle.

Hmmm . . can be easy, can be hard...

What sort of car ? ( I6 / V8 ? ).

I know I just got a set of pacemakers put on the EL8. While manuevering them in wasn't incredibly hard ( undoing some of the bolts removed much skin ), they were a different length tot he stock extractors, and hence required a cut & weld of a new flange . . . Hence I took it to an exhaust shop to do ( lazy & in a hurry ).

Apparently the pacemaker recommended fit time on my set was 2.5 hrs, which according to the muffler shop, isn't generous . . .

I guess the summary is, if it doesn't need welds, doable but can be a struggle in parts ( you will probably need to remove some other minor parts ). You'll want a hoist or nice high stands tho . . . no room = the suxors

Re: Extractors

it's not fitting the extractors that's hard it's the cat and the rest of the exhaust so unless you good at welding i would pay someone to do it for you.
