    Jet-Hot Long-Tube Headers over other brands?

    Right now I'm looking at a set of these headers "01-02 LS1 Jet-Hot Long-Tube Headers (w/Emissions)" What do you guys think of these over other brands. I'm also thinking of going with there catted y pipe if I get these headers. Are these pretty nice in terms of fit, ground clearence ect. Was also thinking of pacesetter with jet-hot coating.

    I run the Jet Hot's with the catted-Y. Good header. The Y-hangs down a bit. I have scraped it a few times. But I am lowered a bit.

    If you want to save a few bucks, the Pacesetter is also good.

    Hey ED BLOWN VERT How low are you saying they hang. I have strano springs on koni's. Are they like a regular header, do they tuck really well but just the Y.

    And to get the pacesetters factory with the jethot coating they are actually $20 more then the jethot. The painted one are cheeper but not really interested. Thought the coatig will help in underhood temp, power, longevity. well I guess the stuff they say on THERE advertisment not sure what people found out them selfs.

    Do alot of people BUY the PAINTED PACESETTERS?

    I have no rust. The headers tuck nice. I don't recall ever scraping them.
    I think the coating is worth it.

    My friend has Jet Hots and they're rusty as shit. If you're gonna get a non stainless coated header I'd go Pacesetter or something in that price range cause they're gonna rust anyway.

    Mine are too, but they look no different than they have for the last almost 2 years.

    FWIW, my Jet Hot brand off road Y pipe hangs no lower than any other I have seen.

    The Ypipe is a pain to put on because you use the hooker headers two piece ypipe. Lil tricky to work with but doable.

    all coated headers rust and flake coating off. it's a matter of when. . .if ya liive in a nice area and you dont let car sit all the time a GOOD coated header will stay for a bit.
