Where did you find them for that price ? Cause I'm looking for some pacesetters too

ghunt Man, you guys make a header install sound like some kind of torture method. I never thought installing my JBA's was that bad. I did them on jackstands with the engine jacked up as much as I could.

Yes, two or three of the bolts are difficult to get at, but otherwise I didn't think it was too bad. Did I have some unfair advantage by having flex head gear wrenches?

BTW- one thing I like about the JBA's is that you can remove and install that top starter bolt from the engine bay (with the battery out) because of the way they designed their primaries. Pretty nice.

Colestang_GT I have the pacesetters. I installed mine when I was waiting on a new transmission to get to me. I figured there was no better time to do it than when there is a giant gaping hole with the tranny removed to install them.

I sanded mine down and sprayed VHT on them. Didnt put primer on them so it looks like crap now since its been about a year and a half. But the looks dont bother me.

The install is a bitch. Most of the bolts are easy but its the ones in the middle on the bottom that are annoying. I have small hands so i got them fairly quickly but it didnt stop my hand from cramping from the crazy positions i had them in turning the bolts. Run the top bolts down first on each one since they are easily accessible under the hood. I remember the steering arm has to come out to get them in there but thats easy, just secure your steering wheel in the straight forward position with your seatbelt. I recommend getting the o2 sensor extension from AM for like 20$ or something like that. Saves time and hassle extending the wires.

They sound good overall and they are a great deal with not costing an arm and a leg.

4vGts Dont give two hoots about the finish on them. I might have them coated myself.

Ok hit me up
July 12th, 2015 07:51 PM
Towelie well i have to get home from this deployment and take them off the car first, so its not really a matter of just getting around to it lol but when they come off i'll send them to you for a killer deal because theyre kinda beat up. the headers need to be sanded down and repainted/recoated, but past that they're fine.
July 12th, 2015 07:50 PM
4vGts Make it a month and
Ill wait lol
July 12th, 2015 07:38 PM
Towelie I will be selling mine for like 200 shipped here in about a month or 2
July 12th, 2015 07:37 PM
4vGts Would be nice to find a used set tho!
July 12th, 2015 07:14 PM
RenegadeRukus I just like how they are the cheapest 1 3/4" headers you can get.

Yeah, I did mine in 5 hours on jack stands... maybe 3 hours on a lift.
