Extractors- brands and ratings..

Basically i wanted to know peoples opinions about different extractors/brands. (ie good, excelent,better than, not as good as, dont go near them)
And peoples experience with them.

Here are some brands, and my understanding of them:

Pacemaker- been told these are probably the best, and most expensive
Lukey/walker- ok but not as good as pacemaker, $200 cheaper but
Genie- not as good as theyre ment to be, expensive
Wildcat- cheapest around, told theyre reasonable

NOTE this is based on what i've been told, most of which is from the sales man.

Opinions please

i run a set of wildcats on my 4lt nc fairlane and i was told they do a better job than most out there. They might be cheap but they do an awsome job.

Pacemaker bought out genie or visa-versa. So apparently their the same product.

I'm pretty sure the mocks have their own design, but when i was talking to them, they said that there's not a lot of difference between their's and lukeys (which i have)...


I'm VERY happy with my lukeys, but i found them to be more expensive ($350ish) than pacemakers ($300ish), although everyone i've spoken to seems to think the lukeys are better than the pacemakers.


FROM WHAT I'VE HEARD, the following would be an approximate order from best to worst (not factoring in price!):
- HM
- Lukey
- Pacemaker
- Genie
- Wildcat

I have a set of pacemakers on mine with a full 2 and half inch exhaust. The power gain was awesome and the note is great. I am pretty sure you can buy pacemakers off Ebay for about $280.

Hope this helps.

Now the proud owner of an AU xr8 220... OHHH YeAh
