    Im about to buy some, going to take part of my paycheck to drop into them. Ive read they have trouble sealing and all. Just want to make sure Im not about to make a purchase Ill regret.

    Are pacesetters good for a cheap header, my factory header is leaking and needs to be replaced.

    Also, are they going to pass emission tests? I doesnt really matter Im just wondering, Ive searched and read different info from everywhere.

    I have not seen the headers for our trucks but I have seen there headers for other cars and I would never buy them. Poor fitment and build quality of them.

    I use to have a set on an old GM 350. They worked great and ran me 150. Great sound, I loved that truck.

    Never seen a good set of Pace setters. The ones I have tried would not seal, leaked like made, and were cheap quality. Save your money.

    I have a stock header now that came with the truck when I purchased it to replace the leaky one. Do you think it would be worth just getting that installed back in the truck?

    When Im going down the highway or really step on the gas you can hear a rattly noise from under the hood, almost like a sped up version of the kid with the baseball card in his bike. Im assuming the flapping is coming from that as well.

    When I seamfoamed my truck, half the smoke came from under the hood rather than the exhaust, so it needs to be fixed soon.

    Chris do you have any suggestions? Do you think just put my factory part on and leave it at that? Is it going to affect my exhaust note or anything?

    Thanks everyone for the help, Ill probably the money for next months rent. lol

    If you already have the OEM manifold, Yes, install it. If you want headers, get a quality manufactured set.
