not an exact fit

Pros: well built, definitely designed for my truck, adds power 10 - 20 %
Cons: my egr connection and the collector adaptor connections leaked, thin paper gaskets.
I work in a shop and tried to install these headers on my lunch hour, couldn't do it... Required at least another hour to finish so I could drive home. ended up with three exhaust leaks for a day. To be fair, I had to cut off 4 exhaust bolts on my convertor that were rusted and disintegrated... I changed my convertor on another day so I had to cut those bolts off. Added a lot of time. The header adapter had bent flanges which is why they didn't seal, I am sure that happened during shipping and not manufacturing. the three bolts were just too short to seal the connection so I used more washers and a tailpipe sealing putty to stop the leak.
If you have extra bolts on hand and a hammer, you will do fine with this set of headers. Ultimately, a very good set.

So many problems, where to begin?
PostedSeptember 20, 2010
Pros: not much,
Cons: EGR vavle not correct, to long, bolt hole problems
I bought this for my 92 ranger which had a cracked exhaust manifold. I wish so badly I would have just bought the OEM manifold. First of all the headers were too long I had to cut off my old exhaust. Not to big of a deal but then once we had it installed we noticed the EGR valve had the wrong threads / input on it. My OEM EGR would not hook up to the headers, there was no where for the O2 sensor to hook into, On top of all that one of the holes had to be drilled out because there was slag in it(cheap welding). The nut was so close to the tube you could not fit a socket around it and we never really could tighten it down that good.
Save your self ALOT of time and a little money and either find a different header or buy the OEM manifold.

Pacesetter headers
PostedJuly 28, 2010
Pros: sound, looks, performance
Cons: not perfect fit
Installed on 2005 Dodge Ram 4-door w/Hemi. I had to grind off about 1/2 on the pass side transmission to make right side fit, farthest forward bolt hole is about 1/4" off so couldnt install bolt. I orderd mid tube so i dont know about length b/c i installed fully custom system.

Great Header for the Price!
PostedApril 22, 2010
Pros: Price, sound, appearance, fit.
Cons: Not long enough to reach stock exhaust (about 2")
Fits in engine compartment better than stock, looks better, sounds better. No dyno, so I don't know what it does for performance but I would assume it is much better than the sharply bent stock four-two-one setup. Excellent price point compared to other similar products.
Stickers on product warn that paint is for shipping only. High temp engine paint works nicely, just need to scrape or burn the other stuff off.
Only problem was the slight difference in reach under the firewall. It doesn't exactly line up with the stock exhaust, it is about 2" too short. If you are getting a different cat or exhaust system it should not be a problem.
Overall, very satisfied with this header.
