The wife's in the big smoke so I've just fitted a set of Genie extractors and 2.5" exhaust to my 1HZ 80 Series and cannot believe what a difference it has made.

Wish I'd done it sooner as it has more low down grunt and has put my mind at rest about the V8 conversion (for the moment at least).
I recommend this mod to all 1HZ owners and the exhaust shop proprietor appears to have been spot on the money with his Genie recommendation over Pacemaker headers as he says the pacemakers are more top end whereas Genies give me more low down grunt. Also about $200 cheaper which wasn't a consideration but paid a significant portion of 2.5" system

Hi Coops,

Agree wholeheartedly with you, did the same to my old 80 series. I fitted Hurricane extractors + 2.5" with real difference. Best thing i did. I also had it dynoed before and after and could measure the difference, not just seat of pants feel. Certainly puts paid to rest those who say that extractors rob bottom end or simply don't do much (well at least on a 1HZ).

Cheers

Captain

Coops, if that was done in Perth, could you recommend the shop please? I was thinking of trying something like that to see how the V8 would handle it.

Nope - done here in Kalgoorlie by Carline Mufflers but you should be able to find one of those around Perth somewhere. There's a good Carline store in Midland if that's any good to ya

Likewise for my poverty pack stock 100 series as it should be a similar setup

new system right throughout Jason but if you wanted to cut costs you could stick with the 2" system initially and add 2.5" later.
The biggest expense was the extractors though

Genie Extractors cost me $700 and it was a further $460 for 2.5" system including fitting. This includes all gaskets and new fittings throughout. Pacemaker Headers were around the 900 mark and more suitable for top end as was explained to me. You could start with just the extractors and upgrade exhaust later if dollars are tight.
I've had mates fit cheap chinese junk headers and take them off almost immediately as they were a waste of time.
I've found it to be a worthwhile exercise as mine is diesel and lacks a bit of low down grunt when I'm in the sand or mud. This should set it off nicely.
