    Easy install, perfect fit

    My car had BBK equal lengths that had seen better days so as a quick fix I purchased these to get the car up and going. To my surprise the fitment was perfect and the installation took less then 30 minutes.

    302 motor

    The headers look awesome on the motor. The motor has just been rebuilt so everything was easy putting together as specialy the headers. I like the easy install before putting the engine back in.

    Nice add on

    Great price. American muscle got it to me quick (as always). Didn't come with all the hardware, but, if that is your biggest concern then you have interesting priorities. Well worth getting these. Only other thing is I wish they coated it at the factory with heat heat refinish. Just another step that you would have to do if you don't want factory refinish on the headers flaking off.

    Performance flow, OE look!!

    I wanted these to keep the OE look under the hood but gain more flow over the stock restrictive headers. They fit great and easy install.

    not bad

    i bought the pacesetters for my 91 lx and i liked them i could feel a difference in power over stock manifolds but it was crazy made the motor sounds pretty good though made it a little deeper. other then that very easy install didnt take long at all.

    Great!

    Works great! Good gain in power, took an afternoon from the rusted studs from the stock manifolds. Other then that went on like nothing.
