Anyone ever tried extractors, or gettin some more power out of these? The missus one feels like its dragging a chain, and being held back..

I have been told 300zx system would fit, but cant say for sure, but would be a starting point.

Anyone Turboed one? Wondering how they would go with one.

Just for a V6 its slow..

lift the red button on the gearstick max....

Headers and a mandrel 2.5 inch system will make a good improvement, with straight flow glass pack mufflers.

Check out the induction side too, if its similar to most other cars, it will be heavily restricted by induction noise tuning etc.

But be prepared for the increased NVH levels, ok for you , but the missus might not like it :-)

Hi truckster,

A few have looked into getting extractors for the R50, however as far as I know they have not followed through due to some heat issues and reluctance on the part of the fitters to do the job for whatever reason. I haven't heard anyone looking into turboing one.

I have had a free flow exhaust fitted (done at same place that Crazie used - not quite as loud though) and it did help - a lot smoother acceleration and a bit more poke.

Most of the Pathy guys just use a K&N / unifilter to get it breathing better and some have done the exhaust. Many also experience lag on acceleration - a good clean of the throttle body fixes this up.

In the end, it is an old V6 motor and although a good solid, reliable unit, doesn't perform anywhere near the newer V6's.

The PCoA forum is down at the moment - when it is back up I'll see what info there is on the extractors for you.

What are the heat issues?

Talking tonight I have been told that extractors for Playdoes are an issue with some fitters... Something to do with the oxy sensor in the exhaust you have to sign a waver that any damaged caused by the extractors you wont come back complaining!

lemme know what ya find out

I'm with you parthy, I had an older 3lt but even that was quite OK for all the circumstances I put it through. The 3.3lt was better again from my recolection of a few test drives (before I bought the 3.5 Pajero).
But Trucky if you must improve performance the exhaust system would be a good spot to start. Eventually if you did turbo it, the exhaust would still need to be done at this stage, so why not start with the less expensive of the two and see if that's enough of an increase in performance then proceed with the turbo mod if it's not.

best regards Trevor.

gasket any honda dealer.

Buy a Clymer manual off ebay or any bike shop only $20ish, and will give you all settings, and oil capacities.

good bike the old XR, 85 should be an RE Model if I remember correctly!
