i would buy some pacemakers, but my 3-inch already puts out as much power increase as an exhaust with a 2 1/2" and extractors..

Hey.. just wondering something in relation to this.. I've been looking at extractors, and I have been told that ones made with Mild steel have a tendancy to rust and bits break off and fly through the cat. converter and destroy it. Unfortuanatly, Stainless are around $670 (new, haven't gone to a wrecker or anything, yet), as compared with around $370 for Mild steel.

A new cat. converter would be around $300 as well, so if these rumours are true, I guess Ill spend $670 either way :)

Mild steel should last around 10 years. The life of a catalytic converter is about the same. So, if you get stainless now, you pay $670. If you go mild, you pay $370. Either way, in 5 years time (depending on car age etc), you will be up for $200 or 300 for a new cat anyway. In 10 years time, you will probably need new extractors (as the mild steel will/may have rusted). Will you have the car in 10 years? If not, do you care if the extractors rust?

Go mild steel unless you own a bank, or you want to keep the car for 10 years.

In relation to the original post, $280, plus $20 = $300. How much do you reckon you can get them fitted for. Labour is between 90 and 120 minutes (ie about $100 - $130) depending on who does it.

I'd go for the exhaust place if you can get them for around the $400 mark. You will get full warranty etc from the installer, which you may not get if they're just putting on parts that you supply.

I just paid $420 for mine (fitted), and I am extremely happy with them - both for what they do for the car, and for the service I got from the guys doing the installation! And no, I do not work for a muffler place, I am a public servant.
