I dont really understand your question....
I think he means he is considering trading the original parts with aftermarket parts..

Well if u plan to get expensive mod parts then better keep coz you can sell them when u r selling yr car. If you know that you r going to sell the car as whole one day, then swap em

sorry guys :biggrin:

okay here's my question; say i want to change my stock extractor to a stainless steel extractor. should i just swap or keep the stock extractor? afraid it will effect the fc (it will most definitely will), if i dont like it i can just swap back to OEM.

You have your answer.

Actually, if you have to ask, you're probably better off keeping.

Also depends on your exhaust header. Is it plug and play meaning just screw on with no welding then better keep old parts....:driver:

broke then change to cap itik hahahhahaha :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

TS if you have space at home then just keep them. Look at them as condoms:

It is better that you have it when you dont need it than not having it when you need it.

No leh !! I am still keeping them. I can put it on the backing sponge which I cut it out and apply wax by hand mah haha...keep them first hehe

TS, if you are worried about FC, then do more readings before modifying. Some modifications will give you more power but very high FC. Spend wisely :driver:

change your extractor 1st..keep the stock one..test drive for few days..if ok can consider selling the stock one..if test drive dont like the new one sell back then use back stock one..or can try other ss extractor until satisfy
