Exhaust Headers: Costs & Sound affects

OK here is the story fellas.
Our car has a nice exhuast system already in place from the Headers back. There is a nice note coming from the back of the car, but once you start moving to the front of the car it is a very weak sound. My questions are:
* If we install some extractors, say pacemakers or whatever else there is, would there be any affect on the car's "Burble". Any louder, deeper, or just a power benefit.
* Also I was wondering if any one knows the approximate price range I would be looking at here. Not really in need of stainless, perhaps just coated or something. Would the exhaust guys fit only the headers/extractors (whatever you choose to call them) because I don't want to change the whole system, the actual exhaust is pretty much brand new.

So can anyone help me much appreciated.

I assume this is going onto a Falcon six (OHC). Extractors will make the car a bit louder (especially from the front) and will help it pull a fair bit harder up high.

At a guess, I would say extractors for a Falcon six would be around the $300-00 mark.
