Well, quick update. Seems like this car + any sort of exhaust upgrade doesn't go well at all together.

A guy offered me a cheap set of Tri-Y stainless extractors for the car. All seemed fine, and for the price, couldn't go wrong. Or so I thought.
Got them home and had a look and although the cylinder head flanges are LS, the bottom outlets of the extractors shoot off in a wildly different direction to the manifolds on the car and won't fit without serious modification.

I began researching and..... they're factory VE HSV Clubsport extractors. Bloody great. What do I do with these things now.
The bloke seems to stubbornly think they are VX VY and won't listen or take them back so now I've got these lumps sitting in the shed as paperweights.

They might work if I made my own special extractor-to-catback pipes (and put hi flow cats in them). But its a lot of mucking around just to be able to say I got VE HSV extractors in my WH. And I don't think any exhaust shops on this island are going to want to be bothered making up special extractor-to-catback pipes for me, as thats too hard for them, and will make the exhaust shop guys too grumpy.

Ah its the way it goes sometimes.

I say E Bay the SOBs... if you were closed to me, we will be talking some sort of deal. I got a VE with the L76 and pretty much sure that might work for me.
