extractors on standard exhaust

has any of you guys put extractors on a car with the rest of the exhaust standard? is there good gains, and does the exhaust sound any beter?
the reason i ask is because i am thinking of getting some for my EF2 ghia 4l. and i was told the standard exhaust isnt that restrictive.

also, the part of the exhaust that does a loop over the diff looks real restrictive, is there anyway to change this

thanks, Dave

Re: extractors on standard exhaust

You would be better off going with a cat back system first or do it all together. Extractors on there own will make little or no real power or volume.

As for the rear section, just do the whole lot, it will and should cost around the same.

Re: extractors on standard exhaust

my EA has paceys and a new (but standard) exhaust. i couldnt tell you what the power gains were as the previous owner did this. its very quiet on the outside but its got a nice note in the cabin.

Cat back exhaust first mate. As well as sounding good, you will notice better improvements with the extractors with the exhaust.

Not sure if exhaust is the same as yours but if u ring ford they will tell u and im sure most of the power i gained was from the exhaust.

Re: extractors on standard exhaust

The EF2 Ghia exhaust is more restrictive than the XR6 one, even though both come with XR motor ( I got one to), The factory did this because Ghia owners didnt want a noisy car (evidently). Cat back would be best first or with extractors. I have cat back and it feels a little better, and a bit noisier.
