    I ran a set of CAE extractors (SBC Tri-Ys into Torana) about 15 years ago. They were actually really good pipes, bolted up with no mods and performed well. No issues at all with their build quality. I only sold them off a few years later because I was convinced that I needed 4 into 1's and bigger pipe sizes (had caught the drag racing bug at the time so was chasing every tenth I could).

    I've used their BBF pipes , fitted awesome . I did do a little tidying up at the inner flange just out of the head to help flow as the pipes were tight out. But for the $$$ they worked great.

    Have used prob a dozen of their starters all sweet

    Is this what used to be called Castle Auto Electrics or something similar ?
    If so I bought a set of VN V8 to HQ extractors from them in about 1998.
    Fitted up well.
    Still got them in the car and they are still fine after doing probably 150,000 km since.

    If they are Castle Headers I have a tri-y set for LX torana. Passenger side needed massaging and drive side down past the steering, yet to find out. Quality is ok. Pacemaker is better IMO.

    hi
    ALL ***Ozzy**** headers have trouble with modern technology
    eg slant plug chev heads ,,,most serious heads are slant plug for chev
    large exhaust port size big cube and blower application
    step headers either increase or decrease in size
    adapter plate headers seem very very uncommon

    Not the only time I`ve heard of Cae headers needing mods .Clearance seems to be 10mm in my application.
    Yes u gotta luv the disclaimer included with quote hmmmmmm!!!

    Redtaxi
    did u have to dent --small or large dimple ??
    or flatten with a block of wood ??

    Needed to squash one pipe oval to clear chassis. Drivers side i'm expecting more dramas. But who knows I might get lucky. With headers it would be the first time though!
