Cheap Headers???

http://www.amazon.com/PaceSetter-70-...1&s=automotive

I came across these headers in amazon and I think that price is just too cheap for them to be a reliable performance mod. Has anyone put these in there camaro or heard of them before?

jewel25 installed them not to long ago. I'm sure he will chime in with his impressions soon.

A few members have them and say they are okay. Jewel and a couple of others, including me snatched them up when amazon put them up for 60 dollars. They're at my house waiting for install. But from just opening them and looking at them, I can't possibly see what makes them inferior. They are a real nice set of mild steel headers. Since you're in laredo, where I'm from too, you don't need stainless because as u probably know, it never rains let alone snow hahaha

The only thing I regret about my headers is not purchasing them sooner.

PMC wants to upgrade the headers in a few years. I really like my pacesetters so I might get another set when these rust out.

Highly recommend

you can get the optional Armor coating with them, or get the coated in ceramic yourself. will help keep them from rusting.

I would have done this if I knew I was going to like them so much.

should hit up lowcountry speed shop, to see if they have a dyno. I don't remember seeing it the last time I went, but it was a little crowded, and wasn't looking for one.
