Pace Setter shorty headers?

I found some headers on Summit Racing's page the Performance 70-1077 headers to be exact by Pace Setter. They're only an 1 1/2 compared to BBK's 1 5/8, can anyone tell me if the power gains would be drastically different? or if they would be relatively the same? They're a lot cheaper and I'm livin' on college kid money so if they make the same power, and are reliable for cheaper I'll take 'em

Basically everyone here is going to say to not waste you're time an money on shortys and it's basically true. I've never tried pacesetter but I knw they sell the longtubes so get those instead

The only thing good about shorty headers are that the can be put on the engine when it out of the vehicle. People that are rebuilding their car get shorts so that they can put them on and lower the engine into the car. There is really no gain. Longtubes are a hassle to put in but they will tack on a few horses and they will sound alot better than with the stock exhaust manifold. Hope this helps.

x pipes dont sound good on our sixxers. at least thats my opinion, i dont wana get bashed . and it will add some power, otherwise it'd be useless and pointless to make shorty's. u wouldnt want to just buy some longtubes?

From what I hear Shortys are almost not worth the investment cuz the stockers are basically Shortys. The long tubes are really where it's at if you have the patience to save up for em. From what everyone says the x-pipes are more "raspy" and h-pipes have deeper tone. They prob flow the same so in this case most people would suggest the H-pipe. They're also less expensive.

Re: Pace Setter shorty headers?

if you really want shorty headers just get some from a 94-98 model V6 they had factory "headers" compared to our log style manifolds but honestly it's not worth it even if your manifold is broken you can have it re-welded cheaper than replacing
