    Pacesetter Headers CHEAP?

    Looking at pacesetter headers and there costs. If a person was to go with these headers and get painted ones then are are pretty good priced, but as soon as go with a coating they are just as much as other brands out there.

    Question = do alot of you that run pacesetter's did you buy them painted, ceramic coated, jet-hot coated?

    Well they are cheap for a few reasons.
    Low quality steel. Low quality welds. Mass produced ( again fitment/quality issues)
    But bottom line is they do provide a higher rate of exhaust flow versus stock.

    I've ran coated pacesetters for a bunch of years now and they still look almost brand new. I have no complaints with them. If you get them get the coated version. If I were doing it again I'd probably go with the stainless ebay headers.

    If you get a set of them we can chrome ceramic coat them for you. This stuff is good for 1600* which is 300* more than what Jet Hot offers.

    gonna disagree with ya.
    i have had my coated headers since 04 and they look very good.
    the welds were good, thick flanges and no problem with fit.

    Always had great success running the painted pacesetters. The fit was great, they may not be the prettiest after the paint comes off but they definately get the job done.

    I didnt say they would not meet the requirements. They are mass produced from a lower quality steel than say Stainless Works/Kooks etc. Now I will re-iterate for all.....Pacesetters (coated) will probably last longer than your car....but the question wasn't will they last now was it
