    I have had them for 4 years, put down 465rwhp N/A with them on my current setup with a forged 348ci motor heads and cam motor. They are the best for the money you can get!!! Save money here, buy something else to help your car with what you save, or spend an assload on other headers, and not have anything left over to play with. I think they are a great deal!

    what heads do you have and what's the specs on your cam? Those are great N/A numbers.

    I've ran pacesetter for a couple of years and I'd have a really hard time finding any reason for someone not to buy a set. Maybe the Y-pipe. That's probably the only weak link of the whole set up.

    I ran some pacesetter shorties on my '97 K1500. The flanges warped about 4 months after install and would not seal anymore. SOTP meter indicated a significant loss of low end power as well. Not sure how those compare to the F-body headers though.

    My current cam is a the TREX V2 which specs out at 243.1/249.5 .613/.619 110+2 LSA. The heads are Stock 853 cast heads that Lingenfelter CNC ported back in like 2000with an old program. They had flow numbers for them as they were then and they only flowed like 290cfm at .600 lift. Since then, they have gotten 2.02 intake and 1.575exhaust valves, which they were flowed with, a 3 angle race valve job with the intake valves backcut, and one of my friends who is a local head porter and does excellent work, cleaned up around the valve seats and took out a little excess material there. I would assume they flow around 300cfm at .600 lift now, hopefully. They have been milled .070" to get my compression around 11.2:1 with my forged Mahle pistons that have -4cc valve reliefs. The intake runner size is 228cc and the exhaust runner is 85cc. I bought these heads off another user on LS1tech, bare for $150. He took them off his road racing corvette and put AFR's on it, and didnt know these heads were Lingefelter. I didnt know either until I saw a stamp on the front of one after they were hot tanked, and called LPE. 465 rwhp was done with no dyno tricks, all boltons except EWP, FAST 90/90, and through a stock rear with a 4.10 gear. Thanks for the compliments! I like to peak power, but now I am looking to change cams to get more streetable and more usable power. The TREX isnt the best street cam, nor the most friendly to drive, and I have in my opinion, the best tuner you can find! I am looking for a G5X2 on a 112 LSA if anyone has one they would want to sell!
