Installing extractors??

Just wanted to know what is involved?

I know some come with flanges that bolt together and some dont. Do ones that do line up with the exhaust from the factory or do you have to cut and weld a flange on the end of your exhaust?

pain in the arse job you have to cut the cat off the old engine pipe weld flange onto old cat and bolt onto extractors,much easier to pay someone $100 to do it for you

I was thinking of pacemakers for my V8 and the exhaust shop said that they don't just slot in, you need to cut out a few inches of pipe from before the cats and basically do what taximan has described.

My quote was $700 fitted BTW, sound reasonable?

$700 fitted for pacemakers is good. I paid $850, then found a place that would've done it for $750.

With the V8 i wouldn't stuff around cutting up the old cats. Some nice new 2.5" cats would do the trick.

Dam i didnt think it would be that hard, I just ordered pacemaker extractors for my I6, doesent look that hard, and the guy i ordered em off said that they would just bolt into place.

Havent had a look yet though. Spose i will find out when i get em.

He also said that i could even use the same gasket (if its not dead) which it probably will be. But anyway, hope its not too much effort.

Yeah they will bolt into place (on the head) but thats all . The cat will need to relocated and be flanged onto the back of the extractors, some companies manufacture extractors with cats welded in them all ready, but i wouldent buy theese i would just get the cat relocated, should only be a 30m - 1hour job at the most

Have you driven a Ford....lateley?

I got pacemakers fitted to my AU a few months back,

$300 for the pacemaker extractors (go on ebay the same guy sells them for $260-280)

$300 for a hi-flow 2 1/2" cat

$300 for a off the shelf 2 1/2" cat back mandrel bend system

The sound from it is FANTSTIC, no drones. I've had heaps of people say how nice its sounds, people at work, freinds, guys down at the tyre joint, even commodoor people.

There is a slight loss of tourque blow 3000rpm but afterwards it go's like a rocket.

Next mod is 3.45 diff gears to help with off the line mumbo.

Oh, and i got the exhaust fitted at a midas outlet and I watched them do it, must say its the most pro job i have ever seen, took the poor guy 4 hours, remove old exhaust, fit extractors, bolt up cat, tack weld cat, take off again, weld it properly all the way around repeat process about 4 times for all the flanges in the system. very pro, very happy with it.

Be carful of people who will try to weld around the pipes when it is fitted to the car up on a hoist, never a good job.
