    Just do a good install! check your wires and listen for leaks. Wrapping the crappy ones works good too.

    99% of the header issues I see are user/installer error. I read far more times of people having good luck with pacesetter and obx headers.

    pacesetter headers owner here. While i did have a problem with the y pipe banging on the floor board when i goosed it, that was easily fixed by heating up the pipes and slightly bending them downwards.

    they are more rigid..so they dont allow the exhaust alot of play as the oem rubber ones do.. since the exhaust is hooked to the engine...extra vibration/movement the engine does..gets amplified to the exhaust..and with bigger diameter pipes etc ..the clearance for that movement is greatly reduced..you can pick up engine mounts from any online store..i go to ws6store.com for the majority of my stuff..but they arent our sponsors so i am forced to tell you to visit one of our many fine sponsors for your solution

    It's funny, because if you go to their site the bottom right lists ls1.com as a site they sponsor. what up with that I wonder?
