Extractors on an EF XR6

Hey.

I currently have an EF XR6 with a 3 inch exhaust system..

I was told, and after observation, saw that at the moment, i have a sensor running into the outlet manifold to gather emission results and send it back to the computer..

If i get extractors, apparently the car becomes un-roadworthy, and sends the wrong results back to the computer, meaning it might affect other readings taken by the computer..

Can anyone who has an EF XR6 or 8 tell me if they have extractors, or whether or not they can be fitted to my model car..

Thanks,

Yagz

Extractors

Yagz,
got my extractoers from Jim Mock.
These have a threaded coupling for the oxygen sensor.
It all fits together correctly and the sensor works as it should.

Extractor prices

The extractors were around $400-450.
I had mine Jet-Hot coated (since "presetation is everything!") and that added $200 so the final price was approx $650.
I am not sure how much fitting is as I do that myself (my workshop is equipped with a Mig welder) - I'm a "serious" hobbiest.

Note, that there are several makes that have very short secondries so the factory Cat will fit. From all I've heard those types are not very good (combo of lack of secondaries and the stock 2.25" pipe to the Cat).

Best Regards.

Remember when you fit the extractors that you have to put on a heat shield - also the extractors run closer to, and put a lot more heat into, your lower steering knuckle which is filled with a silicon based substance - the heat kills it real quick so you have to put a shield around the knuckle - the one it already has is not enough on it's own.

Hmm, that's not too bad.. I was thinking of getting my rocket cover polished so it's silver..

I dunno about doing this yet though.. Can i get the extractors polished up too? So it matches the rocket cover?

I have an oxygen sensor thread in my extactors, I hope that means they are decent. Found I had a bit of an exhaust leak, so seeing as I dont have to use the sensor I plugged it up with a stock sensor.

Also found that my speedo cable decided to rest on the extactors, so now its a tad melted. Still works ok, metal weaving in the outer insulation : )
