    I have the Pacesetters and while I agree there probally the best bang for the buck, I suggest going for a higher quality like kooks or QTP's. I've had mine on for 6 months and there already rusted nicely on the bottoms at the welds.

    Pacesetters are okay for the money. They had a few issues I wasn't happy with,,,mainly quality. Fit was good,,,but a little too tight to the floor pan for my taste.

    The bungs for the 02 sensors needed alot of cleanup work. They left alot of welding slag and the 02 sensors wouldn't screw in,,,I had to take a grinder to the inside and then run a tap through it.

    Other than that they were okay.

    Now the Y-pipe they make is another story,,,that thing took many hours of work to make me happy. Go with another brand Y-pipe if you can.

    If I had to do it all over again I would just spend the extra money and go with Kooks or another known good brand. Saving a few bucks is not always the best route to take when playing with cars.

    where have you been? Haven't been seeing you post for a while.


    To the OP. I've been happy with my pacesetters. The Y-pipe is terrible like he said but I think they all are.

    A buddy of mine used Flowtechs on his '01 WS6. They were the worst headers I have seen for the LS1's. I would go with Pacesetters and avoid the flows.

    I just put on a set of the XS Stainless headers and they are really decent and an affordable price too. I got my headers used and they are the emission's version. I would go with the stainless over coated on a daily driver.

    go with pacesetters if u feel like replacing them.....to me putting pace setters on ur car is like putting a peice of tape to hold something together, for the shortterm sure itll work, however long term its guna fall apart....pacesetters will rust and although they are good for the price, save the extra 300 bucks and get urself stainless steel
