You are the judge.

A lot of people said Pacesetter header sucks and Hot $hot header is the best. There is the reason.

Pacesetter header is the copy version of 1st generation H$ header. Performancewise, Hot Shot's new generation wins because of the newer equal length pipe design. But I don't think it is that big of difference though.

Now I will talk about the quality. They are both pretty low. HotShot headers come with ceramic coated, so it looks a little prettier when it's new, but that thing fades/rusts out after a while. Welding quality of Hot Shot header is not that great either.
I don't know about now, but when I bought my header a little over half a year ago, several people had faulty flex pipe with them and I was one of the unlucky one. Like I mentioned on the other thread, i was pretty disappointed. Unfortunately, H$ header is not even close to be Japanese product quality. I am saying this because they priced almost as high as those JDM headers.

People trash about Pacesetter header, but I never heard people complaining about them. I know a lot of happy Pacesetter customers. Pacesetter might give you less power, but priced right. Now, you judge.

well stromung made exhaust. they run about less than 1500.. they are about 500-600 i think. unless you want to make your own that is better and louder buy an aftermarket muffler and do the piping with mandrel. cost you about 300-400 or so depending on brand name and stuff

ok here are my suggestions on all:
Intake: WAI: go Jim Wolf, CAI: go Place Racing
Headers: Get Hotshots for the power or Pasesetter for the price (really isn't THAT bad)
Exhaust: Greddy for the B13, Stromung for the b14 or b15

Pasesetter exhaust is crap. IMO
Good advice, i agree all the way...:)

owning one pacesetter product in my life was enough to make me avoid them from here on out. the header on my sunfire gives good gains but is a poor fit and quality. i don't care if smc did sell there design to pacesetter..i'm going b&m for shifter and a greddy catback. no header for me se-r.

I remember seeing an article where they compared some headers(for Honda)...Pacesetter came out last...it actually DECREASED the HP.

I wish other companies would start making headers for the GA16....

pacesetter sucks

do not buy their products . i have their crappy monza exhaust(whats left of it )on my car.their exhaust rusts quickly,no improvement in sound quality over stock,and i feel the loss in power in my low end torqe. a while back a couple of hangers broke off my muffler so itook the damn thing off.im running open pipe right now.till i can afford a quality exhaust. well really people are right when they say you get what you pay for . peace
