    Somebody should set up a production line...

    Ivan Washington used to make them, but not any more.

    If you're talking about a carby 505 with only slight modifications and/or you plan on using it as your everyday car, then you're better off using the 1980 big bore exhaust manifold OR the conventional small bore manifold BUT with 1.5" twin pipes added, extending back to about the rear of the gearbox. In my experience either of these give a nice torque increase, good breathing, good economy and they're cheaper and quieter than tubular extractors.

    I don't think special extractors are worth the expense or hassle unless you're flushed with cash or can make them yourself AND plan on doing some pretty extensive modifications to the rest of the engine and car. I plan on going this route on a fairly modified 504 I will be building as a second car, but not on my slightly modified everyday car.
