I had the redback version, they were ok had them on for 4 years and still going strong. that is still going until the engine went bang and the whole thing was sold off to the wreckers... but the extractors still worked.

Have a read a couple of threads on here about people hooking up the new 2 1/2" system with extractors and then experiencing power loss. Is this something to worry about? Mine is only a carby TB42 on dual fuel.

if you but a bolt up kit it should be easy enough the only things to look for is how high the patrol will have to be to feed the exhaust through the holes left for it (i havnt done a patrol but normal cars are a pain around the diff area) and remember to put some heat shielding over the extractors on the fords ive done ive burnt a/c hoses & melted accelerator cables , patrols have a little more room around the engine so you may not have these problems but i found a piece of stainless sheet bent to the shape of the extractors and attached saves alot of problems later.
as for power loss i havnt had that ive had some that made only a little better on power and ive had a couple that were like waking out of coma but in all cases i found much better fuel economy

cheers for that Mac. Apparently the bolt on kit I am getting has been made fitted to a shorty so I would assume it will fit mine - I hope! Yes, plenty of room in the engine bay and nearly everything there already has heat shielding to some degree, anything else I will have to do myself.

So a big week planned next week. New radiator to go in, new body mount rubbers and 1" lift blocks and a new Lukey exhaust system and extractors. Then that will be it......for about a week or until I can find something to replace or improve on!

The better exhaust flow from extractors and larger diameter pipe and freeflow muffler may make your engine run leaner , you may have to fine tune or rejet your carby a bit to the richer side to compensate for this and so should gain power

Did you get the MPH set? I did a few months ago, matched them to a Lukey 2 1/2" system, had it serviced & tuned (dual fuel) & it's been great, a noticeable improvement.

got it from performance exhaust as a bolt on set up. Off ebay. 2 1/2" lukey with Wildcat extractors. I know I should have gone the Pacemakers, but the budget just can't afford them at the moment.

Been looking at all the different brands of extracters over the last couple of months ,
I talked to local exhaust shop an they fitted several pairs of the MPH extracters ,all they said was to make sure you used a decent length flex joint.
Since then i bought a set from ebay an fitted them an a full 2 1/2" system on my N/A TD42 over the w/end.
Only problem i had with the extracters was getting the holes for the studs to line up ,I had to slot a couple of the holes to fit them .
Only $235 for the set ,will see how they go.
