Features:
  • PaceSetter Headers are custom-engineered for racetrack performance and sound in your vehicle
  • Forged from mandrel-bent 16-gauge mild steel tubing with your choice of protective finishes:
  • 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.
  • Armor Coat: PaceSetter's exclusive Armor Coat process utilizes two layers of metallic-ceramic protection that's cured at a searing 2000°F. It won't discolor like paint, chrome or dull coatings, and keeps under-hood temperatures lower.
  • PaceSetter Headers boast substantially higher flow than inefficient stock exhaust manifolds
  • CNC-machined thick steel flanges with milled surfaces ensure a proper fit and the best seal
  • PaceSetter Headers come equipped with positions for all factory sensors
  • Connects without hassle to the stock Y-pipe on most models
  • PaceSetter Headers are designed with easy bolt-on installation in mind for most models (some vehicles require welding or fabrication, select vehicle above for details)
  • Includes detailed step-by-step instructions and custom-machined gaskets; utilizes stock header bolts
  • PaceSetter Headers are available in 50-state smog legal and off-road/racing only models (select vehicle above for specific availability)
  • Made right here in the USA
  • Your PaceSetter Headers are backed by a 3-year warranty
Description:

Saddle-up some PaceSetter Headers-they've been cranking out high-end European performance right here in the USA for decades. That's how they earned the black stallion as their enduring logo.

Stock headers are inherently inefficient. That's why PaceSetter Headers are specifically engineered for more free flow that cultivates power, boosts looks and retards under-hood temperatures. The transformation for your vehicle is immediately noticeable.

PaceSetter Headers are clearly different from competing performance parts. Each uses 16-gauge mandrel-bent mild steel with thicker flanges for a leak-free fit. Your choice of protective coatings completes the impressive package: black paint or PaceSetter Headers' exclusive Armor*Coat.

For straightforward installation, PaceSetter Headers bolt into place using the included gaskets and the original hardware. And, your PaceSetter Headers carry a 3-year warranty. Isn't it time your vehicle set the pace?

Moss Warranty Act Statement

Thanks to the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act: US Code – Title 15, Chapter 50, Sections 2301-2312, your vehicle’s factory warranty is protected by law when you add aftermarket parts.

Header Installation

If you are installing the header on a MG with a weber carb, you will need to make 4 spacers 1/4 inch thick because the weber intake manifold is thicker than the original manifold. Other than that installation was straight forward & simple.

Everything great, just one exception

Great product except the knuckle on the steering hits one of the pipes. I had to bend the pipe to make room for the knuckle and avoid wear and tear which would eventually wear a hole in the pipe and create an exhaust leak. There's no way to know until the motor is in where the knuckle makes contact with the pipe. I hope the manufacturer will make this adjustment going forward.

Performance upgrade

Did the exhaust overhaul this week. PaceSetter header (2.25" out) into Flowmaster resonator/cat/Super44 muffler (2.5" out) and a GoRhino tip (3.0" out). I also sprung for a K&N air filter... $480 in parts from Auto Anything, and worth every penny. I gained a good 12-1500rpm worth of power band. IDK how much horsepower I gained (+10%?) but seat torque was imeadiatly noticeable. And that growl tho!

headers

Headers look nice in armor coating but gaskets seem a poor quality, hopefully they last a long time. Another thing kit does not come with EGR and O2 sensor bolts, need to run to local store to find those bolts.

Some Caveats

Overall, this header is a good value and shipment was prompt. However, There are a few caveats: #1. Needed to modify [cut] the heat riser "clamshell" to accommodate the pipes and remove tranny bracket; #2. No O2 sensor flange [as shown -in worst possible location- in reversed pic]; #3. The biggest -and completely baffling- caveat is that the "smog pump" port mounts were tapped for 5/16 SAE bolts rather than 8mm!

Pacesetter Headers

Great set of headers for the price. They improved horsepower which is definitely noticeable. Plus, they sound amazing with no exhaust.

Do it right the first time ??

This is 2nd second set of headers from pacesetter. This first I got was #70-1191 and the metal in 5 yrs went bad. So this time around since I was pleased with the performance I got the armor coated set.. For the price with the coating its still the best bang for your buck compared to other performance headers.

Don't fit 2wd

They say it will fit a 2wd but they drop way to low and sit on the torsion bar. Don't was your time if you have a 2wd.

Poor craftsmanship

None of the gaskets lasted a day, the egr was clocked wrong, O2 sensor holes didn't line up, it was 4 inches short to bolt to exhaust, and the paint just burns off. Poor quality

No Customer Support, poor quality control

1st after encountering 3 assembly problems, I sent PaceSetter CS e- mail and got no response. My issues were: Extension section failed to mate with header.One pipe would only go into the other partially needing full welds. 2nd, the header manifold is 3/8" and the 240Z manifold is 0.6". The adapters were incorrect and required new parts which never came. After no response to my e-mail, I ground .125" off each one. Lastly,the manifold adapter failed fit over the studs without further grinding.

Did not fit very well....

The headers had to be bent away from the frame and closer to the engine to allow the exhaust to connect.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY!

This header is not worth your money. the weld is not compleate on the outside primary tubes. they do not weld the inside plate to the tubes so there are gaps and uneven surfaces to decrease flow. this is not a performance header. Personally the factory cast iron header flows better than these headers. Don't waste your money!!

They are put together really well, the black coating to protect them during shipping held up, just an all around good product. It has the bungs for all of the sensors and came with all the hardware needed.
