    I have a cracked exhaust manifold. Rather than replacing it with a manifold I am considering a header. I realize I will not see a ton of performance gain, but the price is similar so why not ..

    I am looking at the pace setter header for roughly $170

    Has anyone had any experience with this? I'm just curious as to whether this will bolt in, or i'll have to do some cutting on the exhaust.

    Any input?
    Thanks!

    It started to rust right after it was installed and the gaskets where total crap. It never fit right and I had it installed by a really good muffler shop. I would of rather had a new stock exhaust manifold put back on before I had another pacesetter header. Just my .02.

    My old 98 taco.
