Pacesetter Headers

I'm looking at buying some Pacesetter or Borla headers for my Titan. There is about a 400.00 price difference between the two. Research them on youtube and the sound the same. I know Borla awesome but if i can get the same sound out of both then i should go with the Pacesetter. Has any one installed the Pacesetter and had any problems with them?

Borla does not make headers for our trucks, and Pacesetter is garbage. Go with JBA, DT, OBX or Stillens.

Re: Pacesetter Headers

Didn't know Borla made headers for the Titan, so no comments. Do a search on here for the Crapsetters, I mean Pacesetter. I personally would save the cash for better. Like DT, Stillen, OBX, or JBA. As a matter a fact if price is critical JBA long tubes or OBX would be the best bang for the bucks. We have vendors in the forums almost giving 'em away. Check 'em out.

Bilsteins HD, PRG adj. shackles, PRG swaybar endlinks, Stillen front and rear swaybar, RAS, Stillen Rad, BD PP, S&B CAI, DT LT's, Berk MP, SS Zoomers catback, Mag-Hytec rear diff cover, CF dash kit.

Re: Pacesetter Headers

I would stay away from the PS if I were you. Get the JBA Longtubes and if you need cats for emissions get Highflow catted Cajun bpipes. You will be a lot happier and the fit will be perfect. Just do a little research on here most guys have went this route also. If your in a visual inspection area of the country Jba Shorties are your other option but kinda a pain to get all hooked up.

Re: Pacesetter Headers

I haven't seen Pacesetter headers on a Titan, but I have seen multiple sets on 240sx and sentra. They suck. I have never seen 2 alike, as if they were assembled with no jigs. The tubes were all bent correctly but the flanges were always off and looked liked they were welded by 1st year trade school students. Tubing is cheap. If you are willing to save $ on a cheaply made part that won't fit, fall apart leak and rust, do it. Otherwise, save up for quality pieces.

JBA LT's are the best option.

Re: Pacesetter Headers

I'm surprised pacesetters suck so bad for Titans... I remember a friend of mine put a set on his LS1 4th gen Firebird and they held up pretty good... seemed to be decently built...

Re: Pacesetter Headers

The PS headers dont even come with flanges to bolt up to the bpipes.

Re: Pacesetter Headers

I'm running a set of pace setters on my T, they came with a crap paint job and i had to extensivly modify the giant collectors they come with, 3 inch collectors are WAY to big for these trucks. Anyways after 3 or 4 hours of fabrication i made them work in the truck. They perform good for the price but unless youre a car builder with a full shop stick to the higher end stuff.

Don't you just order part number 82-1191 which slides right onto the headers and replaces the b pipes? Comes with the bungs and flanges it looks like... If the headers are crap thats one thing, but b pipes and/or bolting up to even stock exhaust don't appear to be an issue if you order both kits...

It is true you can make anything work with the right tools, materials, and knowledge. I owned a set of these quite some time ago on a Ranger I used to have, tried to save some money, another lesson learned. The quality on these was high school welding class, i had them ceramic coated from them as well, welding splatter all over the flanges, and poorly done welds to start with IMO. They just ceramic coated over the splatter on the manifold flanges, no way a gasket was going to seal there. Ever try to file off ceramic coating? Not a fun task to say the least, their gaskets were a very brittle material, never did seal, I ended up with three sets of gaskets on those headers, and finally junked em. Never again buy anything from them again due to the lack of quality. Three inch collectors have never been a good combination for the Titan, people have tried over the years and it just is too large for our trucks. Just my experience with them, and only one.
