Question Mazda SP20 Stainless Steel Extractors

Hi,
Has anyone on fitted or know anyone that has fitted these extractors that you can muy on eBay form the US? They seem cheap at only $53.90 +$97 delivery to Australia?

Any assistance here would be greatly appreciated.

My Advice would be stay away from those ebay cheapies, as thats just what they are; cheap..

From reading on the forums overseas, these are known to crack at the welds, probably better off buying a set of pacemakers that'll last a while.

Pacemakers also have the added benefit of being one of the best headers available off the shelf for the FP/FS engines

EDIT: Theres a distributor on Gympie Road in brisbane.

Looks like a copy of the OBX (which incidentally I will have for sale after I install my Maxim Works header this week)

The best header is def the Maxim Works, Rupewrecht can source one for you. They vary in price though (I got a good deal)

Scratch that, I just found out the hard way that it's not a bolt on fit.
