    Headers

    This has probably been posted 1000 times but hear i go. I am on a budget and want ceramic long tube headers. I have read that pacesetters are the best bang for your buck - it is true? What kind of hp and tq gains will i get? What problems can possibly go wrong with them - will i have any problems with scraping them on a stock suspension car? Is this an installation i can do myself?

    Yes they are the best bang for the buck.

    "Average" for LTs is probably around 20-25rwhp.

    Problems? Possibly cracking in which I would demand for a new set. The coating will also start to come off in due time.

    Clearance is awesome with them.

    I thought the install was pretty easy.

    no clearance problems at all.
    expect around a 25 rwhp bump.
