Extractors + Exhaust

Guys

Im looking to put a set of extracts on the old girl, recently having done the mpi conversion. Just wondering wether a full exhaust is required to get any gain at all from them - im not looking for anything incredible. What do you think? Im getting a set of genies.

Failing that, how much would i expect to pay for a 2.25" system fitted? I want something really quiet, i really dont want a noisy car at all - especially with the 3 speed - itd be annoying on the freeway and all noise and no go.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Jason

Re: Extractors + Exhaust

2.25" cat back system should be in the vacinity of $250-$300 depending on where you go. Full system your up for anywhere between $700-$1000 incl hi flow cat...but shop around as prices vary dramatically.

Re: Extractors + Exhaust

ive heard high flow cats are a waste of time on a stock six.

$250-$300 sounds good, is that fitted? include two mufflers? i want it quiet!! also anyone know any good places in SE melbourne?

btw i already have the extractors.

Re: Extractors + Exhaust

on my ex ea i had hurricaine extrators and a 2.5" system. All up paid $450 and i noticed a big difference. eg excellerator more touchy, more bottom and top end power, slightly better fuel consumption.

Re: Extractors + Exhaust

I have heard nasty stuff about the genies....too big in the primaries (not that I have ever used them)

Go 2.5 in, 2.25 is too small IMO

Where did you get it all from?

and what is a Gen3 CAT and mandral bent mercury?

don't make fun, i've been looking for a while to get an exhust system, did it give your cat any more power acceleration wise?

Re: Extractors + Exhaust

It got it from an exhaust place here in sydney , i shopped around for a month and this was by far the best price i could find.
The Catalytic converter is the same one that would be found on a new VY SS , so they flow extreemly well on an I6 (even tho the standard one flows just fine) .
Mercury is the brand of the cat back system , its not press bent but mandrel bent so you dont have any (asmuch) restriction on bends as you do on a normal press bent one...

Power wise it has made a difference , but i havent really given it a thrashing yet....

Hope this hepls

James

Hey dude,

I know a good bloke in dandenong if you're interested. In behind Pedders, right up the back, next to the car detailing place. My family has known him for about 15 or so years and he is a real master of his craft. Quite reasonable on price, too...

As for the exhaust, take it from someone who's had both a 2.5 and 2.25... for what you want, i'd get the 2.25 and some lukey extractors.
This will give you a more noticable increase down low and nice responsivness. IMO genie extractors aren't anywhere near as good as they used to be.

Make sure you get straight through mufflers, and because they pose no restriction, you can just keep adding more until it's quiet enough to suit your tastes.

Cheers,
Dave
