Pacesetter has been around for a while. The quality of their headers really depends on which community you ask.
I don't think anyone over at cgp has tried them out but I know w-body store is going to test a set to see how they do.
I'd hold off to see how well they fair on other cars.
TOGs are still made but by a different manufacturer. ZZP sells them.
If you’re looking for a cheap header, maybe try *&* Headers? www.wbodystore.com sells them.

Pacesetter is down here in the Phoenix metro, and one of the local AZCGP guys works for 'em. So far all the local members that have tried them have been satisfied, as far as I know. I think they would need to make an H-body specific header for our applications, though.

I had talked with Eric last April about test fitting the Pacesetter headers on a "local" BC members car

It took them a while to get the GP set-up active and all the little things finalized, so I really hadn't bugged him about it this summer. Now, that the GP are out of the way, I will ask him if they would still consider test fitting for an H-body when I see him next.

So far, all the local GP guys have been very happy with the set-up.

The rear manifold downpipe location on the Bonneville is slighty different than the GP.
More offset thahn centered.

They may fit just fine, but nobody has tried them yet. I had offered up my car for a test fit, but we haven't finalized anything. Usually, there is some minor work that needs to be done on a Bonne to accomodate the downpipe location.

I have been talking with Eric, and I might be able to borrow a back header and the "cross-over pipe to back header" collector, to see if I can line them up underneath the Bonne to see any obvious fitment issues and take some pics. It may not be very useful depending on what I see when I try to eyeball the placement, but it is worth a shot. I'll let you know if/when they let me "borrow" the pieces.
