What brand are they? I just installed my BBK shorty headers tonight, and they cleared fine.

I've heard the Pacesetters sometimes have issues man, I know they're cheap, but you should've spent a little extra on the BBKs, no offense

Non taken. I just had to get something better than the cracked stock manifolds. Also on a tight budget.

If you don't mind, what did you pay for them? Being an older Mustang, was it hard to find headers for it?

It's not pacesetters fault he didn't pull the dipstick tube out and put it back in lol the flange that bolts to the head won't fit through there the way you have it picture with all the KY jelly in the world. Have to turn it sideways or take it out and put back in through topside of header.

So the only way would be to pull the dipstick out of the motor?

Alright guys. Managed to get clearance from the dipstick. All that needs to be done now is tighten up some bolts here and there, bolt up the divorced dual midpipes, and we're done! Anybody have any reviews on the pacesetter shorty headers?

Make sure before you bolt the midpipe up to try to listen for exhaust leaks and what not. I've had mine on about a month and no problems with em. Be prepared for some smoke from the paint burning off though haha. It did make the exhaust sound a good bit deeper on a cold start, but after it heats up it goes back to normal haha. Didn't notice any performance gains though

Alright guys. Headers are locked tight with no leakage. I ran into a snag because the previous owner attached dumps straight to the muffler. My exhaust shop did a horrible job cutting and welding my catalytic converters. The passenger side dumped tip hits the rear end unless the muffler bracket hangs a little low. Now I know to stay away from that certain exhaust shop.
