    personally, I would go extractors because they are full of super wicked goodness and are fully sick. that said, pacemakers are pretty good too.

    I can see this thread going really bad.

    Pacemaker are probably the best brand of extractors on the market. Also put in proper cold air intake (not a pod) to get it breathing in some more air as well

    90% of the time the extra power (if any) made from using different brands of extractors/headers isnt really noticeable when driving,

    i put extractors on my rb30 , its a daily driver, i was just after a decent sound more than power.

    ultimately for extractors to show where they make power your screaming the engine to redline.

    but as others said , you get what you pay for, and depending on the prices of what you can get, the pacemaker would be the better option

    dunno what extractors you use bud, but most people would see excellent gains in performance well before redline compared to a stock exhaust manifold.... maybe it is the way you drive.

    Personally, i would rather a set of Di-Fillipo's, or custom made Gonzo's...

    But for off the shelf headers, Pacemaker or Genie would be the way to go. I have used mainly Genie's on V6's an always Pacemaker's on V8's.

    'H41ry' on here used to have a ED Falcon 6 banger that went like a shower of shit, with a freshened up motor, "mild'idh" Tighe cam, bit of head work, and a few other little things. Had a sed of PAcemaker comp series extractors with straight thru 2.5" exhaust (not cat). Sounded pretty dam good (for a Ford lol) and went bloody hard.

    I had a brand new set of Pacemaker extractors put on my first car a 66 Valiant and was very impressed. Better power, sound and fuel economy. To take the most advantage of extractors you should also replace the entire exhaust system to suit.

    My sister had an XF Falcon S and fitted Motivator Tri-Y extractors and swears by them as the best Ford extractors ever. My Father also had Motivator extractors fitted to his Ford Corsair and the improvement was very noticeable. In both cases exhaust sytem and mufler were also improved.
