    Default pacesetter headers

    70-1209 pacesetter headers and y pipe for 95-02 f bodies

    starting price is about $260 (painted)


    they are very strong headers,forged from mandrel-bent 16-gauge mild steel tubing. 1-1/2'' primary tubes,2-1/2'' collector
    higher flow than stock headers. They have positions for all the factory sensors. you can get them with Black paint (standard): Double-layered protective black paint is cured to a smooth finish. The paint provides solid protection against corrosion during the storage of PaceSetter Headers. or Armor Coat. Armor Coat process utilizes two layers of metallic-ceramic protection that's cured at a searing 2000F. It won't discolor like paint, chrome or dull coatings, and keeps under-hood temperatures lower. armor coat does cost more.

    I have painted. and dont' see any need for the coated. you shouldn't expect to see much of a gain (maybe 5 hp) but they are a great supporting mod.


    I've had pacesetter painted headers on my camaro for about 3 years now. I'ver never had a problem. Alot of people have problems with the egr leaking. There is a simple fix for this. Just buy block off plates ($5 each at zzperformance.com. you'll need 2)

    I give this product 2 thumbs up. deff a great mod

    I have been looking into these, how hard are they to put in and what should I expect as far as time for installation and is there any special tools needed?

    I agree, I've been meaning to do headers for a while. If its that big of a deal to someone to get them coated, just get the painted ones and some Duplicolor high temp ceramic paint and do em' yourself.

    so i just got my car back monday....everything is great....however, pacesetters have been nothing but trouble to this point. sent wrong length bolts to connect headers to y pipe, and the place where the egr hooks up on the driver side is too loose so it leaks creating the most obnoxious ticking noise!!!! gonna get it fixed soon...not a huge deal...but still, for a new product...should be perfect. wish i woulda had more time so i could have gotten fff long tubes. oh well maybe down the road
    dont be scared mr v8 its ONLY a sixer
    sig thanks to will

    yeah, you have to heat them to cure the coat.

    The gaskets sent with the headers are not the best. Several people had clearance issues including myself. I had to slightly modify my subframe to get them to clear.
