Pacesetter Long tube headers?

I have been shopping for headers for my truck and I think I going to run with pace setter. The company said they will bolt right in but i highly doubt that. Ive heard you have to either remove or set the cats back a little. Im alse want to put in the their offroad y pipe aftermine is corroded and i rather replace it all and get it out of they way. Any opinions? Any running pacesetter long tube headers?

only issue with pacesetters is the passenger side header flange you have to open one of the holes up just a smidge more because its off a little

I also had to reform one of the tubes a bit to clear one corner of my bell housing. When I say reform I mean beat it to a flat spot. Other then that they are great.

Cool

I have found two different Pace Setter headers for my 07' ram QC 5.7L Hemi. There is the 70-2211 Performance Long Tube Headers & the 72C2211 Performance Coat Long Tube Headers. Which would be the best to buy? They look different from one another, even though the part numbers are the same, with one set coated, and the other set is probably painted.

Mine fit perfectly at the heads and instead of reforming the header tubes, I cut off the 'wing' on the bellhousing that was interfering with the headers, it's not used anyways.

I got mine uncoated and now wished I spent the extra to get the coated ones, also do yourself a favour and get a quality set of fasteners, lot of stories on the net of people using the ones that came with the pacesetters and they come loose after a short while. I used studs & nuts wich made fitting the headers even easier.

Same for the gasket, use a new set of OEM ones instead of the paper ones that come with the headers. And don't forget to install the heat protection sleeve on the fuel line where it passes over the driver side header.

Thanks for the info. I usually mount headers with stainless steel bolts, with drilled heads, and I use safety wire to keep them from coming loose.

I agree, coated headers, I cut the trans tab, OEM gaskets and high quality header bolts. The ORY works great but I modified mine to mount dual cats just behind the headers and cut the length of the cats off of the Y pipe to keep the fit the same. My cats are located over the trans cross member. What year truck do you have?
