Cool pacesetter header...

I just installed a pacesetter header on my car today to replace the stupid stock manifold which leaked like hell... made my car sound like a pissed off lawn mower...

quality... as good as any other header i have bought...
price... less than 200 bucks...
installation... pain in the *** to connect to stock system... but it went together... suggest you have a second person help you with the install...
impressions... i am happy with the piece... i would rather the o2 sensor not be on top of the header... but all in all it works... made the stock exhaust sound deeper with no rice pop and crackle...

I was considering a pacesetter. But I'm also looking at OBX and DC. I heard DC is crap for 240's.

the dc is a nice part... i sold one 2 weeks ago to a guy here i knoxville...had i not sold it i would have put it on my car yesterday... dc did a very good job on it... i dont know how well it worked because i never put it on... i got the pace setter because it was in stock at the parts store... i would have had to wate a week to get the obx unit...

So far the only review i've heard about would be the OBX headers and HotShot headers. Using the Obx header 've heard they aren't too great, the tend to crack, with the hotshot headers (my friends) It seems to be really nice. Wish more companies made headers for the KA engine.

use a 2.5 inch exhaust on a na motor... other than swapping out the exhaust to a smaller one i dont know if a header will help you out or not...

header would only further decrease backpressure, therefore, killing low end torque, but hotshot headers are nice, i have a friend w/ one and it sounds mean w/ no cats

just my 2cents, i heard that the best headers for the 240 are the hotshot headers. im lookin at the pacesetters as well but how do you guys think it'll do with heatwraps?
