Please state the brand and how well it fit, if you have an option for me. Cheers.
buy the AVO .. dont go near ebay ones, they have been known to suck shut as well as being a pretty poor fit, I have the Pro speed racing one on my GC8 now and am pretty unhappy with it, fitment was pretty bad, I ended up picking up the AVO with the intention to install it when i get the chance.
In terms of installing it, have a shop do it, its a pain in the ass doing it without taking the manifold off, and if you intend on doing it with the manifold off, it can be tricky and time consuming. Most shops will charge a few hundred to install and shops like ichiban and rumble shack here in sydney install these all the time so they shouldnt have any issues.
Remember: do it once, do it right. there is no point in getting a cheap one for $100 when it'll take longer to install and at the end may not fit well, where as you can spend the extra $200 to get a good quality one that is guaranteed to fit.
