  • Exhaust extractors V6

    Hi, looking for advice... We have a cracked L/H exhaust manifold that has been welded already but leaking again. I am thinking of fitting headers/ extractors and was wanting to know if it's worth doing. We tow a caravan with our car (NP V6).
    Thanks Tom

    you will definetly gain some torque etc with extractor / headers fitted and even more so if you fit a new high flow catalic convertor as you never know your existing cat could be partially blocked now. so my answer to your question is Yes do so.

      x2. I have recently fitted extractors to my NM and it made a notivable improvement in either power/torque or economy.... depending on the way I drive New cat converter on the way.

      Well worth it.

        I fitted extractors to my 3.5L NL (basically the same engine) and noticed very little difference.

        The extractors were fitted as both (L & R) factory cast manifolds had cracked and I though that there was no point fitting 2nd hand manifolds which whould also probably crack in the future (maybe next week or next year?). New factory manifolds are dearer that extractors!

          We also had extractors fitted to our NP 3.8, same problem, cracked LH manifold.

          There is a small but noticeable improvement in performance and about 1-1.5 l/100 better economy.

            check that your NP isnt one of the last ones with the 3 cats. Extractors will delete cats and bring up an engine warning light

              thanks for all this info - was coming to the conclusion that extractors are the way to go on my 3.5. sick of the annoying noie from l/h manifold on acceleration!!
              Any idea on approx. costs to fit extractors would be greatly appreciated..

              Thanks guys

                    We paid $529 for for pacemakers, and $220 to have them fitted by our mechanic.
