Smile AU3 XR8 220Kw aftermarket headers

Hi there, can somebody please tell me where in Sydney I could purchase some excellent value for money aftermarket headers for my standard XR8 220kw.
I have read good things about Advance.
I live in NZ but i'm coming over for Bathurst

Thanks very much.

Jason.

Dunno which is the best place to buy them, but the Advance tri-y definitely tick all the boxes for pipe diameters and lengths as far as OTS headers go.

It'll cost you AU$100 (or less) to have them shipped to your home in NZ. Is it worth the hassle of carting a set of large extractors with you? Contact Advanced headers and get a shipping quote.

ARL111,

Try Liverpool exhaust, they use Hurricane Headers, they are very familiar with the AU XR8ís and the set up required for the Windsorís. Very reasonable priced. Give them a call, nice blokes.

Regards

They make Hurricane headers. Proven results for the 5.0L and also the T3 5.6L. The guy who owns the business used to have a ED 5.0 and he developed the Hurricanes thru R & D on his own car. I have had a few sets on different cars with a noticeable improvement by both the bumometer and dyno

You think you can take them as carry on luggage? I am not a seasoned traveller but I very much doubt it
