Eric(hitmanx) was having issues with pacesetter, they didnt want to deal with him or some shit.

Anyways stay away from pacesetter if you can afford better. I would look into Dougs or Thorley headers. (They are basically the same header but the company split ways a while back and they are 2 different companies now). If your heart is set on pacesetters then all the headers are the same for 4.8,5.3 and 6.0.

...because he reads the Internet to much.



Mine are fine. Welds are fine. No fitment issues. I recommend them.
:lol: your right maybe I do read too much, but I trust a lot of guys opinions on them and a lot of people have had issues, others have had no issues like yourself. Really its up to him in the end.

For every 1 guy who complains there are probably 50 guys with no complaints. And im pretty sure its probably user error most the time.

i will look into pacesetters and some more expensive brands tonight after work...
i need to get these asap

is there anything else i will need to hook these up? i already have a flowmaster so will this cause any problems?

and i know that most of you guys dont like flowmasters, and will tell me to ditch it..but im keeping it for now so what else do i need to do in order to fit long tubes?

I remember a pic on here not too long ago of a set of pacesetters that looked like a monkey welded them. They had globs of shit inside and I don't know how they passed quality control. Seems like they're one of the brands that you just have to get lucky on who welded the one you're buying.

They are shitty to say the least. I dont care whos looked great and whos didnt. I had some, they were fucking shitty. They are great for a "budget minded" person. But I wasnt paying for shit again. I went for a better header. Paces coating is fucking terrible. There were even places that didnt have any dam coating! Plus there will never be a black painted header under my hood. Theyll rust even quicker. I wanted a better header, plain and simple. Im ranking Pacesetter right down at the rock bottom of the scale with Flowtech.

I already know who is going to bash me, so Ill just lie in wait.

wow...
instead of blowin my money, i think im gonna play it safe, jsut buy a new stock manifold for now, save my money, and buy some better quality headers when i can afford them.

i dont want to take the chance throwing away 400 bucks on crap.

So you're not camming it soon? If so, you should do the headers first.

yeah thats what i hear...
I AM planning on camming it soon...ive been checking out ebay and ls1tech for some deals...
but i still have my extended warranty and i wanted to talk to the guy at the dealership and see if camming it will void my warranty or not...if its going to void my warranty then i will have to wait to cam it.

i still am planning on getting headers...i might jsut wait a month or two.
