    extractors, headers and a 2.25"-3" catback exhaust system on a 2004 vz sv6 commodore, my pride and joy. now everyone i have been getting quotes off "cant do it because its too much hassle" unless im willing to spend over $3000. is it easier to do it myself if i bought a catback and just got someone to put in the headers and extractors? any help would be much appreciated :)

    Who exactly have you been going to that have said it's too much of a hassle?

    Are you asking them to build you a custom system or?

    Not sure about the headers, but putting a catback on is easy enough usually, the hard bit is getting the car high enough off the ground to you can work under there.

    Where in Vic are you exactly, I'm sure there a re a few members on here who will be able to point you in the direction of a decent exhaust shop.

    i am in ringwood, and i tried a few mobs around the area all wanted $2500-$3500 to do it and the reason? they needed to make "custom pipes to fit the vz, and 'its just going to be a hassle' ". load of sh*t if you ask me. the internet is useless thats what bought me back here. what would you suggest?

    That's weird that they knock you back mate. They must be booked out with bug jobs or just hate holdens?
    Have you tried ringing around or has it just been the one shop? Cause that guy mite just be a douche

    A cat back should be pretty straightforward and a member on here ships them out straight to your door. But if you want extractors I'm not sure...maybe you could buy them and pay a shop to install? I've only installed extractors on a wb ute ls1 conversion and we had to pull the engine out to get the suckers in.
