The regular uncoated Pacesetter headers go for about $130, but the ceramic coated ones go for up to $350. Ceramic coating has three benefits on the Pacesetters: keeps heat down, keeps rust from forming, and keeps leaks from forming. It sounds like if you got an uncoated header and powder coated it, the last 2 conditions would be solved, plus you would save a lot of money. I understood it that it costs about $50 to get a wheel powdercoated, so it can't be that much more to get the headers coated. Is there something I'm missing? Can powder coat take the heat? Thanks.

If you don't have pacesetter headers yet, DON'T GET THEM! Go with bosal or brospeed or something. I wouldn't get even the new ceramic coated stuff until they've been around the block a few times.

headers

damn if pacesetter is so bad why do they even sell the stuff. This is good to know I was in the process of odering those headers. I am glad I read this. Hey where can I get the hotshots from? those Brospeeds are really expensive at least at my local performance shop.

paeco has been around since 1964 dude...LOL and have you checked into jet coating? its $150 for grey and $180 for black, white, red, blue, or "aluminum".

its just past the experimental stage and theyve been using it on piston tops of nitrous/supercharged engines to withstand the extra heat.

HAHAHA :D
Memories of the smiles we... :)

Hehe I've read all this before on Probetalk. I suggest going over there and doing a search on headers, you find all sorts of debates both from people who hate/love pacesetter to a set of hotshots that caused an engine fire, etc.

If you could find a good deal on pacesetter, you should get them and then send them to a machine shop where they can change the slip fitting into a flanged fitting like the brospeeds. Checks for leaks first though.
