Is This A Good Price

Hi All
I have been looking at getting a 2 1/2" redback exhaust with pacemaker extractors. I have called afew places and the best i could find was $720. Is this a good price. Is it worth getting a hi flow cat for another $240 or will it be a waste of money.

Well at the moment its a stock CFI other then putting thermo's instead of the clutch fan. But i am planning to do the MPFI conversion and head work.

I dont understand why these people with CFI cars spend good money on extractors before they do the MPI conversion!
The MPI converson is cheeper and more effective in getting more power from your car. Extractors will get you 10kw if u r lucky where the MPI conversion will give ya 20kw for 1/2 the cost! If you just want a beefy sound, cut off a muffler and do the MPI conversion! Then save a bit more cash for a good zorst and Air intake! :s6:

Have to agree with Phoenix, the MPFI is much better for far less money.
I suggest buying a new cat, if you care, and a good exhaust/extractors set from a wrecker....
