Pacesetter is Back.....

They are shipping their new redesigned headers out now. The new design wraps the primaries around the steering knuckle ala Kooks, so they are supposed to fit better.

Anyone have pictures or comments?

I have read that a redesigned set of the Pacesetter Headers was installed by at least one individual who noted that his steering locked-up upon making a left hand turn. Other than that, I have not heard (or read) anything else regarding construction quality and/or fit.

I saw that...but everyone claimed it was BS and the shop installed it wrong. They also claimed it could be fixed with minor adjustment. Only thing is, most people are doing this on jackstands on their back. So if a shop can't get it right...you average Joe will have issues.

I think I have decided to go with headers before anything else I found away around the CA smog law. So in looking I have found that Kooks is the way to go but would love more info on these
