ZC Fairlane exhaust system

what would you guys recommend ive got a 351 windsor with duel exhaust currently with standard manifolds..... wanting to put a set of extractors on either pacemaker or redline, (pacemakers $489 - redline $399) but i have a column auto which hinders my ambitions for a moment can the linkage be modified in some way ... has anyone done it?

also i was just going to have the current exhaust mated with the extractors i think its a 2 inch exhaust, would anyone see problems with that?

Which brand would be recommended as well?.....

thanks any ideas would be appreciated........

Re: ZC Fairlane exhaust system

I've got a linkage like thay modified on the XY Ute to clear the 250 extractors - it's pretty straightforward - just cut the linkage rod on aech side and add a couple of pieces of flat bar to space the middle of the rod down...

The exhaust shop did it when they put the extractors on.

Re: ZC Fairlane exhaust system

yeah that has happend to mine as well as I have had to do the same thing when dumming my motor gearbox extractor locations. I have the Pacemaker Tunedlength the try y's shouldnt need as much if any modification..if that helps ya.
But in saying that mine is a 350W(347+30tho) stroker not a 351.
But I have kept the collum shifter.

Re: ZC Fairlane exhaust system

Hey DMAX, yours should be a Clevo though yeah?



Hey Phat ZC, have you had much trouble with your linkages becoming worn etc? Like jumping out of park?
On my ZD when I fitted my tri Y's to my 302 windsor, I did it myself, I had to slightly bend the collectors but apart from that they went in great. Until... I went to put it into Park, the rod hits the extractors. One thing I am looking at doing is fitting a T-Bar (I reckon its just easier and looks better), no one knows why but aparrantly they just go better ha ha ha

Re: ZC Fairlane exhaust system

i am having trouble with the linkages the bloody thing wont go into park sometimes, but as long as it doesnt happen in the blue slip she'll be right

and yea i thought about converting it to a top loader but i cant be bothered and i like the column its old school hehehe ill try and work out the problem with the linkages

hey rhett when you put in the pacemakers did you notice better performance and grumble when you hit the load pedal

Simple adjustment - the nut on the shift arm at the bottom of the steering column...
