Dude, Cory runs these on his truck (Jaunty Bishop). He seems to be satisfied with them, but hes done some modifications to them... you'll have to have some custom work done to connect these to your current exhaust since these don't have flanges, which isn't a bad thing since the two bolt football shape design is an engineered disaster. aFe just started making some high dollar ones I don't think anybody on here has tried yet...if you have money...those would be interesting and different.

Yeah lol that was the answer I didn't want they have dump collectors... Dam he really went balls deep in his headers their art. I looked at the afe stuff but just too much money. I'll look into what it would cost me to build a set up like Cory's but I will probably end up with the same old jba's everyone and their uncle has.

Stick with JBA friend, this is a job and you want a second time trust me. JBAs do not require wire cutting or welding and are a direct bolt on. Cajun bpipes has the complete headers packages with the required Uprev tuning to correct the AFR's. Call me with any questions. Www.cajunbpipes.com

Thoughts? Am really thinking coated jba's but I want to be different.
Why fix something that isn't broken? Unless you're going for all out performance and are able to fab something custom together there's no point in dumping the money/time into it. Guess what? The only person that'll see the headers are the installer(s) and anyone that crawls under the truck. In my case that's me and me, maybe a mechanic if I break something drastic.

What nightowl meant is you don't want to have to do the job a second time. I feel I am fairly competent with a wrench and have loads of tools, this job took me about 8 hours, and will test your patience. If your truck is 4x2 the job will be a little easier, since you don't have drivetrain all in the way. I would recommend JBA's as well for a sure thing, just make sure you inspect them very carefully for damage before you start the install. Also, when youre satisfied with your headers, throw away the supplied gaskets and get the OEM metal ones...trust me. Aaaaand read some of the other install posts on the forum for tips and tricks and whatnot.

Yeah it took my brother and I roughly 9 hours to remove manifolds (already pulled the rest), install headers on a 4WD, and install the rest of the exhaust. I've had to pull each header once after that and I am not in the least bit interested in pulling them again.

I'm preparing for a header install. Picked up a set of JBA's because everyone says they are a sure thing. I've got the Nissan gaskets. Getting money together for B pipes. I'm leaning toward Cajuns but I'm still looking at Berks. Can't make up my mind.

Berks only come only in 2.25" and have universal 2 bolt flanges. They use 304ss pipe but the cat is 409ss so what's the point in 304ss prices?

Cajun has custom laser cut flanges off the oem Nissan gasket.
Cajun offers 2.25" and 2.5" bpipes.
Cajun is a lot cheaper with the same cats and offer a heavy metal emission friendly cat.
Cajun also offer Uprev tuning services which are required with headers.

Hope this helps give me a call when your ready.

Don't go the pacesetter route honestly, yes they work great, but cost a good bit of money. I did this because at the time there weren't any good 1-3/4 x 3'' header options available.

If you absolutely must be different then wait a few more weeks when JBA releases their 1-3/4 x 3'' Titan headers, they look great and have Vbands. They will also have a midpipe section.

However, i'd just do what Cajun (jeff) stated, go with the JBA 1-5/8 x 2.5'' headers ceramic coated and call it a day. Locate the AFR sensors in the header collector which there should be provisions already there. Then go with the cajun 2.5'' catless or catted B pipes, (also resonated available). Use his 2.5'' to 3'' Y pipe kit and over axle setup with a JBA muffler or event better a Borla XR1 and vibrant ultra quiet. That is the number one proven solution for performance and sound.

Plus get uprev and you will have completely transformed your truck.


The pacesetters I did do look great but there are also things I don't like about it in terms of how the B pipes had to be routed under the crossmember, this was due to the fact my headers weren't test fitted on a titan prior to installing the collectors. Plus the collector pair cost more than the pacesetters... it was an expensive job.

I'm planning on going with the JBA 1-3/4 x 3'' when they come out, but i'm also heavily modified and don't really use my truck as a ''truck'', its more of a fat 4 door sedan that has a bed now.

Thanks Nightowl!!! I will contact you when I'm ready. Do you know anything about Casper Electronics O2 sensor extensions? Will I even need them? I'm going to replace all of the sensors during the header & B pipe install. I saw in an earlier thread guys were not sure where to put sensors in headers. Not passing emissions is not an option where I live in GA.

I have 8-10 customers in Ma and none have complained about not passing. If these pass in NY I think you will be just fine.

Never heard of those extensions. My advise stay away from extensions they are not needed and can cause issues e-tuning with Uprev. Everything screws in the stock locations with the Cajun Stage 1.

What's the best sensor to use since I plan on replacing all of them during the header / B pipe install? NGK, Bosch, or Denso?

I've been hearing about these coming out for quite some time...

What info do you have about them coming out? Timeline, etc.

FYI. I am First who has installed ARH LT Headers and B pipes with Their custom Y pipe. Mine are 1 3/4 primeries with 3" Merge collectors with built in Scavanger Spikes. and full 3 inch exhaust all made out of 304ss.
They are also available in 1 7/8 primeries. So these will be available soon.

I like the way they look being semi equal length but the 3 inch y pipe is a little to big. In a perfect world for me I would have 1 5/8in equal length with a 2.5in collector but nismos are impossible to find lol. I really like the sound of equal length headers.

Imho a header that cost over $1K is absolutely crazy because the power gains are not there to justify the cost of the header on a pickup truck that is daily driven over the proven JBA headers we currently have. Unless you loaded with $$$$ and just want the added 5-15hp if that, the JBA $450 6400ss headers are just fine. This is JMHO not poking jabs at guys who have the Nismos, Thorleys or other brands.
