Questions on headers.. long or short tube

So I recently found a crack on one of my header pipes. Iíve looked around for a replacement but I keep coming back to the same pacesetters I have. I was thinking of trying a different brand but they all seem to be over $500 coated. Do you guys recommend any other brands? My pacesetter which were coated have rusted on several spots and at the time pacesetter was not standing by their product. If I canít find another then Iíll get the same.

Also a while back I was trying to figure out a tick noise I hear bouncing of walls when I drive by. We thought it might be due to the headers not because of a crack but sound traveling through them. Does anyone hear a tick loud enough to be heard like that? Iíll try a post of video of it.


Lastly my goal with the truck is for street performance and rilability. Are long tube still the way to go? Specially with my setup. Any one running short tubes?

Logan with the power wagon has shorty headers we are removing and putting longtubes on and doing the front mount turbo swap. shorty headers are more of a mid to top header where long tubes are low to mid. my headers are headman 1 3/4" and have been on the truck since i bought it without a single issue so far. the 1 3/4" is small for my motor but so far has not affected it well atleast i dont think it has. pacesetter may be your best bet i personally have not looked headers up in a very long time.
Redtruck-VA and ric3xrt like this.

Thanks I’ll check out the headmans and look around a bit more but sounds like I’m gonna end up with pacesetters longtubes again.
