There are a few guys on here who are. A lot like to bash them as far as quality so get ready for that. I have heard some decent things and some bad things about them. Mostly manufacturing issues on the bad side, and deterioration. Keeny a member on here recently put some on and has had good luck so far, look him up and see what he did as far as prep before he installed them. They have the best results in a non-heavy winter climate.

Remember, you get what you pay for. The black paint will smoke off on the initial start as it is just for shipping purposes and you'll have bare aluminized long tubes open to the environment. Not to mention the Pacesetters do not have equal length primaries like the Kooks/ARH so you get no performance gain there and some people have fitment issues.

Take all that into consideration before putting them on the car. I would take that $180 and have a real nice night or weekend out with friends/family/gf/wife/whatever instead of the Pacesetters. Just MO tho.

Quade,
I run pacesetter Longtubes, I've ran them on every thing I've had that I put headers on.. I've noticed over time the quality continuously gets better..

The welds are nice, doesn't leak, fitment is great. The only downside is the cheap black paint that come on them.

Which I easily fixed by sandblasting them and I rattle canned them with header paint from an autoparts store..

I just don't see the point in spending several hundreds more on kooks or a big name brand for a 2 horsepower difference. If you paint the pacesetters and install them right they are nice. The set I put on my truck lasted 3 years before I turbo'd the truck.

You won't be disappointed on them that's for sure. I'm not saying there isn't better headers out there, because there is. But I can't justify spending the extra $$..

I installed mine on jack stands without a lift and with hand tools so if you have any questions at all just message me brother!

I noticed a pretty nice difference in low end torque, and the sound difference is awesome. Really deepens the tone.

If you have horrible winters where they salt the roads a lot, sure they will deteriorate but so will any metal on the car.. But they certainly won't fall apart or anything as long as they are prepped and painted right and installed correctly.

Just try to get the full exhaust system hooked up sooner than I did. I drove around 3 days with open headers and I felt like Helen Keller the next 3 days lol

Thanks for the reply man, I was reading all your old post when you bough the headers.

I got a good *** deal on them so I couldn't pass it up. I'm probably going to get a couple friends together and install. I for sure will let you know if I need any quick help.

I live in California where it's sunny and hot 90% of the time so I don't gotta worry about the weather hurting them. Thanks for the reply

I did it on jack stands and with hand tools. On American muscle one of the BBK headers have installation instructions I followed those since it's basically the same thing..

Don't hesitate to take off the k member, your going to have to lol so don't waste your time thinking you can get by without it

Also why your doing it this would be a good time to delete your EGR if you want. That way you can pull the egr tube and get to it.. I've done the egr delete my self and it's easy as well.
