    Pacesetter VS. Hooker

    About to invest in LTs and I was just wondering if there was a performance diff. in Pacesetters and Hookers, or if the price is the only diff?

    No performance difference

    Don't buy the black ones they will rust out and look shitty in no time. Spend the extra $100 and get the ceramic coated ones. You'll thank me you did.

    +1 on the pacesetters man. Best bang for the buck and don't look bad either.

    Ya gotta love Hookers!! I have the whole sytem including muffler and love the way they sound and form past experience they will last for years to come. ( Ceramic coated)! Don't buy painted ones they won't last.
    Never owned pacesetters, but Hookers have always fit right and if the primaries and collectors are the same I guess I'd still up for Hooker~~

    ive had my pacesetters for over 4 years now and barely any rust.
    pacesetters have think flanges and really good welds. overall the quality is top notch.
