I had an h pipe on my mustang from them. Granted, the car was not driven in winter, but the part fit well and didn't corrode at all in 3 or so years. I never had a problem getting it apart (which was frequent).

Re: i vote get it

I bought the "bolt on" CJ5 header and dual exhaust kit for AMC V8's.... I'll not be buying Pacesetter ever again....

header bolt holes didn't match the heads, Header collector flange hits the frame, exhuast pipe routing didn't clear the T-case. and one of the tail pipes didn't even have a bend to clear the axle. it went straight over the axle and cleared by about 1" leaving no room for flex on a speedbump. Took it to a muffler shop, aske dthe guy there to see if I was just an idiot and couldn't put a puzzle together... he scratched his head, messed with the pipes for about 20 minutes and gave up and bent me new pipes. On top of that, their customer service sucked donkey testicles. their reply to my issues was "What do you want us to do about it"

Only positive thing I can say is that it sounds good.....
