Post Aftermarket extractors on a low-mid boost car - worth it?
Are the stock ones that bad or is it just that from an N/A point of view there isn't much that can be done to improve the performance but this is one of the main things that helps therefore it's a recommended mod? And how is this improvement when you factor in boost?
Just wondering if fitting some RPW extractors to the supercharged FTO will be beneficial or how beneficial they'll be, anyone know?

All of my exhaust looks standard.

I'd say you'd yield at least some improvement. The Y-pipe on the RPW unit is much smoother and freer flowing.

I mean, I ain't no expert. :lol: but in conjunction with intake mods and the rest of the exhaust it does get a few more kilowatts out of the motor in NA form. You'd have to think with the S/C and tuning there'd be maybe more.

I'd say its probably worth it, especially with the S/C.

By the way, if you're interested, I may sell my RPW extractors if you need a set; since I'm doing my 6a13tt conversion, I probably won't need them anymore. Might have the flex pipe for sale too if I go for a different setup.
I'm also not too far from you, so it'd cost you less for postage ;)

Hi mate, are you selling just the 3-1 bits that bolt to the engine (these are the extractors/headers/manifolds right?) or the full lot up to the cat?
And do the extractors also bolt straight up to stock flex/y pipe bit or do I need the whole rpw kit?

You need the whole lot. They don't bolt to the stock y pipe.

Thanks Rob.
Right so I either need a full kit from RPW, or Shiggz - are you selling the lot and if so how much for? (pm me if you want)

Are you in a hurry to get the whole set?
I can probably sell them to you between June-July when I work out if I'm getting a new exhaust system.

Was just thinking about getting some from RPW as we have a pallet coming up to us from them next week, so i'd piggyback on the freight cost.

But then I had a bill for fixing the mercury engine on the boat yesterday so i'm also kind of thinking I've spent enough on me for this week!
So yeah no rush, i'll probably think about it anyway, if you could please let me know what figure you were thinking of so I know where i'm at that would be good.
Cheers

Rob

I'd be happy to sell you the extractors + y-pipe for $400.
Just depends in June-July, once I finish my build. If everything is running okay, then I will probably upgrade my exhaust system, and can sell you the RPW kit.
