Need info, Extractors

Hey all,

I have a bit of money saved, and was talking to the teacher at Tafe, he said the EA-ED head was designed by Yamaha, and the exhaust manifold by Ford, which choked it up. The Teach said extractors are the best thing for the cross flow head, for improved performance and economy.

Wanting to know the average price of New extractors, and if second hand are any good, what should i look for?

Can anyone with extractors back my teachers statement on Extractors

i thought ford did the ea- heads. the xf unleaded heads were done by someone else (think it was honda) and then ford had a go themselves with the ea on.

i prefer pacemakers. which are $299 at superplus (www.superplus.com.au)

hm's and genie seem to be very good as well. i think they are more expensive though.
extractors are definatly better than standard in most cases.

Superplus sell the pacemaker extractors for the EA for $275 in the parts peddler mag, so you can get them there.

Just make sure you quote the magazine cos they might only put that cheap a price in there ;-)

I'm thinking about getting a set for my car at that price, locally the best I can get the exhaust place down to is $365

Thanks for you the input guys,

Also was curious as to where the Oxygen sensor goes?

Brent79, what was that about reseting the computer?

You people mention, the extractors gain power at the top end of the scale, but does it lose and power down low?

With extractors well on my car anyway (3.9 cfi) there was no major bottom end improvement. There was a significant increase in mid range after 60 and in the top end is where the benefits are truly 'felt'. You will notice your car will be allot more free-revving as well and some fuel economy benefits if you don't thrash the crap out of the car.
