    Pacesetters vs Hooker Headers?

    I was about to order a set of headers, and I was torn between these two. I have only heard good things about both to be honest. They will be ceramic coated long tubes, with the emission fittings. Which One?

    I voted pacesetter just because that's all I have used. Great fit and finish. No leaks with gm gaskets and band clamps.

    Pacesetters or the SS ebay headers if you want to go cheap and Kooks if you want something good.

    American Racing makes decent headers. Same quality as Kooks with more power output.

    Hooker FTW, never had banging and never had a leak. 5 + years on them. I have seen Pacesetters bang on other F-Bodies around my area.

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    every brand of y pipe has had banging issues.
    anyways banging is easy to fix.
    take car to local exhaust shop, have them heat up the y pipe in two spots and pull downwards with a crobar, no more banging.

    ive had my pacesetters for 4+ years now and they have never leaked.
    good welds and thick flanges.
