    Question about Pacesetter longtubes

    2 questions...I installed the black painted pacesetter long tubes and ORY pipe. Does the back coating usually start peeling off right away? If not then Im running lean maybe. Also anyone else have fit issues? My pipes rattle against the floor when Im on the gas, and the motor mount seems fine.

    Stock motor mounts will cause the ORY banging issue and painted steel headers will rust almost immediately and flake off.

    Poly mounts/jet hot coating the headers will solve all your problems even though you probably dont like hearing that

    but the good news is headers have to come out to put in motor mounts ...

    you may need to install another hanger on the right side. The LPP headers and Y that I'm getting, come with a passenger side hanger for the Y pipe.

    Shouldn't be too hard to weld a hanger on there though.

    I have the Pacesetter LT's and the TSP TD's to be installed. Is it recommended for me to get the poly mounts? How is the install?
