Re: Consumer alert : Pacesetter Exhaust kit for CJ5
You're not the only one. I bought a pacesetter header for my yj. the first one they sent me had a warped flange. I sent it back, got a replacement(after much hassle, i.e. "Didnt you test it before installation, you might have warped it") the second one they sent me was ok, so I installed it and after about 1 week, I found out the pumpkin would hit the header at about half flex. the header was positioned so it routed RIGHT under the oil pan. It also hit my driveshaft at half flex. The paint peeled in about 3 weeks, and now it is completely rusted. I took it off after the 3 weeks, and installed a stainless steel Borla. I am MUCH MUCH happier now. not only does it fit, but it is great sounding. If I we're you I would return that pacesetter as soon as possible, before they give you flak about it being out of warrenty. I am still working on my pacesetter getting refunded, and this is 7 months later. The guys at quadratec told me they might drop Pacesetter from thier list of suppliers because of the poor customer service pacesetter gives.
