Opinions Please

Thanks to Venom XR, I now have my heart set on buying Herrod Motorsport headers and exhaust system. However I recieved this from an on-line company and I'd like opinions on whether this would be the way to go.

Jamie,
Thanks for your enquiry. The HM Stainless steel headers (with built in high flow cats) are listed by HM at $1010.90. The cat back system is listed at $612.70.

In our opinion the HM system is the best system available in Australia. The benefits include more power (kw), increased torque (nm), improved fuel economy, improved sound and all round drivability.

We can offer a 20% discount off the HM list price which makes the headers $808.72 and the cat back sytem $490.16. If you buy the both at the same time we can give a further 5% off making the complete system $1233.93 inc GST.

The Herrod headers are ceramic coated (mine are HPC). Besides the performance bebefits, you also get lower under-bonnet temps - handy when the original heat shield doesn't fit.

I'm running HM headers on my XR8 and are very happy with them. I'm pretty sure they are coated, but not sure. Well the reason i think this is just like a set of HPC coated headers i had once you could grab them after about 15-20 minutes of the car running. I can do do this with the HM headers too. Anyways. if you get stainless extractors HPC coating is waste of time as the benefit is marginal because the stainless is a very good conductor of heat.
