I'm looking to install some headers. I only wanna spend around 350-400 bucks. I want the nest bang for my buck, I was thinking about doing some custom one cause a friend of mine is an amazing welder, but one question on that is how to make them work lol. But back to buying a set lol. I have a 5.3L V8 so what size primaries should I get, I know I want to go to 3" and have it 3" all the way back. Can you guys give me some advice about what you guys have on your vehicles.
Please and thanks!!

pace setters are cheap but I heard they suck and arent worth the money, like its better to just get a better pair for more money.
has anyone heard of BBK? are they good?

I used to have dynotech, they didn't do much in terms of power mainly because I didn't have a tune with them. Sold them to a friend But I'm going to try the ceramic pacesetters When I put in a cam and port the heads and throttle body. I'm thinking they will have good scavenging abilities. Also a custom tune will help get all the power out of them.2009 chevy 1500 z71 4x4

If you're wanting to go cheap, pacesetters are probably going to be your best bet. As far as them not being all that great, they'll give you performance numbers, but definitely not quality. They begin to rust fairly quickly depending on what season you're in and the location in which you'll be driving. If I were you I would just save up the money and buy a quality product like Kooks, you will NEVER go wrong with Kooks LT's. I had them on my GTO and I'll never own a different brand.

BBK is very good. They started their company w/performance mods for the Mustang, and have since expanded their product line. Their quality if first rate.Mike - 1998 GMC Suburban 1500 5.7 4x4
