Re: Pacesetter headers installation PITA!!

Hi YJAroundTheWorld,

What are they like after all the sweat and tears? I need to replace my exhaust and somebody offered me a whole exhaust, front to back including headers (however I think this is a Hedman Hedder), only 6 months old for £50 ($75)

Re: Pacesetter headers installation PITA!!

PISMO 2001?? Wos this? (I am from Great Britain, so it doesn't mean anything to me).

I just finished installing the Energy Suspension master poly kit. Only took me 2 days (suspension, steering, new shackles, body mounts, the lot!!)

(Also see "Lube for poly bushings update" post).

Re: Pacesetter headers installation PITA!!

oh, very year i go to pismo for vacation, if im not mistaken, i believe it is the only beach in Cali that you can legally drive your vehicle on. It is sort of like a dune buggy park on the ocean, it is pretty cool, you should check it out on the web.

Great!! Our Jeep club organizes "The Blackpool Run" every year... This is the only time Jeeps are allowed on the beach! I'll check it out...

Re: Pacesetter headers installation PITA!!

I had a pacesetter header on my 88YJ 258 for a while. I know all too well about the fact that the EGR stuff doesn't fit. By law all I'm allowed to say is that I now have a OEM cast manifold on my jeep.

Re: Pacesetter headers installation PITA!!

I hope you have a lift kit on your jeep. I have the pacesetter header on my 87 4.2(installed by previous owner). The front diff housing hits the header with any thing less than 2.5" of lift. It also hits off road even with my 3.5" lift.
