    Pacesetter Headers PRE-Report Not bad??

    Some of you may remember a previous post of mine. There were some people that were wondering what the actual HP increase would be by adding Long tube Headers to the vehicle and I said I was about to put Pacesetters on my car and I would have before and after numbers done to find out...

    So today I did the pre test Dyno on my 02 SS. I have to give this shop some Props they were a great bunch of guys. The name of the shop is Conley's Performance Plus in Humble, Texas. They Have a Mustang Dynamometer which I wasn't too happy about, cause the generally give you lower numbers. He ran the car two times and came to me and said, "You have a Wednesday built car". I had never heard that saying before. He told me that it meant that it was a strong car. Monday and Tuesday cars are slower cause the Union guys were still drunk from the weekend and Thursday and Friday cars are bad because the Union guys are tired of working at the end of the week.

    This is what my car ran....
    1st run was 315.15 HP and 320.94 TQ. Wow I thought that was great for a mustang Dyno.
    2nd run was 326.31 HP ! ! and 333.97 TQ ! !

    Tell me if I am wrong guys, but that is pretty strong for a Mustang Dyno isn't it? Maybe I have one of those freaks I have always heard about? My headers are on back order and should be here in about a week. I will post up after I have them installed and have it tuned to let you know what i unleashed with my toy.

    oh and for those of you wondering read the description below for my current mods.. not much

    Their dyno must be setup to correlate with a dyno jet. 326/333 on a dyno jet would be good for those mods.

    Man, I can't wait they are going on tomorrow!!! Sorry for the lame post just excited about finally getting some headers on the car! Anything or tricks I should know before putting them on this weekend? I already bought the stock Gaskets from the local GM dealership. Hell with those lousy looking paper ones.

    I just did mine, here's a little advice.

    Give yourself PLENTY of time to do it. Start as early in the day as is reasonable, so you will have time to get everything together and then iron out any wrinkles (i.e. anything that's tapping/banging/jingling that needs to be adjusted).
    Second, get a 10mm gear wrench. It will save a lot of frustration, especially on the back header bolts.
    Third, don't worry about shearing off the bolts holding the y-pipe to the header on the passenger side. My buddy and I sheared off all 3.
    Fourth: My dipstick tube was a PIA, but as long as you have the mounting tab bolt out, if you just pull and wiggle enough, it will come out.
    Fifth: Have some wood boards handy (2x4's). They are good for hitting stuff into place (banging the Y-Pipe into the I-pipe), as they won't bend the metal.

    Other than that, my install was pretty straightforward. I would reccomend starting the car with open headers just so you can here what an uncapped LS1 motor sounds like. Good luck!
