    Extractors for 1GR-FE V6 Engine

    Has anyone found a supplier of extractors for the 1GR-FE engine?

    The maifold noise discussed here http://snipurl.com/mqll on LCOOL would be fixed by a set of decent extractors.

    I found one company in Queensland via Google, with no mention of their price.

    Anyone been down this path yet?

    Drew, have a look at http://www.jbaheaders.com/05Toyotanew.asp. They are made for the US 4Runner etc, but I would imagine they would be close to perfect. Retail for about $450USD.

    Make sure you check the clearances. Vehicles in the USA have thier steering on the other side of the engine, so things like steering arms, power steering fluid containers, etc are located in totally different locations to our vehicles. They can often be located right where the extractors may be.

    Just something to keep in mind anyway.

    Thanks for the replies.

    :shock: I don't know if I'd be willing to spend US$450 sight unseen, would be good if someone local did them.

    Well done on the research! 8)

    Cheers,

    Drew.

    Found some!

    I've found some locally made extractors. See http://www.taipanxp.com.au/products.html

    I'm going to give them a call tomorrow and see how much they are, I'll post the results here.

    Cheers all,

    Drew.

    I've just got back from dropping the '120 to my local exhaust place. I'm getting a set of Genie extractors and other pipe mods fitted. All ceramic coated also.

    I'll post more details later. Can't wait to get the truck back.

    Genie make great extractors - I have always had their extractors when I've fit extractors to my cars...

    The Genie Blacks come with a "lifetime warranty"

    with respect to the remainder of the pipe, I am very curious about seeing a set of Kerry's from TaipanXP, as he uses Vortex mufflers developed in the UK.

    I had a good chat with Kerry the other night, and he told me all about his systems.

    • * All systems have a catalytic, so they meet Euro 4 emissions
      * Vortex muffler improves heat dissipation, maintaining temperatures around the 600 degrees recommended by the manufacturer
      * Lower carbon output (not sure how this is achieved)


    The only gotcha, is that I can't find ANYONE in Melbourne who has one fit to a D4D....

    I'm not a genie fan anymore.
    We had a set fitted to one of our work cars and had nothing but pure trouble from them. After 5 warranty claims and 5 new sets, they ended up giving us our money back and telling us to "p^^% off".... (True)...

    Turns out the units couldnt handle the heat (Full time LPG vehicles) and underbonnet temps and would literally melt the metal where the two sections were close together and cause them to bubble & crystalise and ultimately break thru.

    I would suggest by now they have (hopefully) improved their quality and customer approach, but I still refuse to ever buy thier products again.

    Matt,

    It's grouse!

    I'm about to head outside and take some photos. I was busy last night and didn't get a chance.

    The power increase was immediately noticeable. I have a ScanGauge that shows my actual fuel flow rate in real time. For the same push in the back, the fuel flow was lower. For a given fuel flow, the push in the back was greater.

    Climbing hills (I live at 640mASL and work at 30mASL) the 120 holds on to a higher gear for longer, and that's with a full tank of juice. Can't wait until I burn off 100kg.

    I got the system ceramic coated also. They look awesome. Shame it's not a show car! :lol:

    The engine noise is much quieter. Particularly under acceleration with the windows down.

    The exhaust note is deeper and has a bit of a burble. Has a nice racey note when it's given a rev. The exhaust note under acceleration is deeper and slightly louder. With the windows down is almost has a bit of a V8 rumble. :twisted:

    I don't feel so bad about missing out on a D4D now!

    Photo and system configuration details to follow.

    Drew.

    Ok. Here are the photos.







    It sure doesn't sound like a V6 Bomberdore (thankfully)! I'm happy with it.

    I can't remember what the primary pipe diameter is, but the final pipe (I think they call it the intermediate) is 2.5".

    They are a set of Genie Wildcat #277. See Genie's catalogue here: http://www.genieheaders.com/Catalogue2006.html

    They cost just over $1000 fitted. I actually ordered the 278s but they supplied the 277s with the new Y branch as they were having problems with these systems installed.

    I'm very happy with it so far.

    I also got the exhaust place to replace the tip with a polished stainless item. I know, it's pointless bling on an off road vehicle but I couldn't help myself.

    Yep they replaced the headers and the intermediate pipe all the way back to under the driver's seat.

    The irony about he fuel economy is that I fitted a winch and all the associated steelwork last week, next week I'm getting a snorkle fitted and possibly an OME suspension kit. So the longer term fuel figures are going to be a bit skewed. :roll:

    Cheers,

    Drew.

    Haha. :lol: No mate.

    I sold my beloved Triumph Bonneville to a collector. This has given me a bit of spare cash to get the things finished on the Toyota.

    My mates at work are giving me a hard time! I keep telling them that you need to buy one accessory per week, that's the rule.

    Seriously though, the spending is about to stop big time. I've almost got the vehicle configured how I want.

    Now to get out there are see Australia and enjoy my truck.

    Cheers,

    Drew.
