Speaking to both Bill and Enrique they have overall good reviews on the headers (which I am sure they will chime in later)! Of the top of my head right now Enrique just slightly concerned with shielding the Trans Vaccuum Modulator (4t-60 only), from the heat of the cross over pipe. The made a temp heat shield, but plans on building a better one.

It was a good meet...

Might not look like a lot of work..we took it at a good pace and got it all done. There was a ton of work..

On the PaceSetters.. overall I liked them. The expected items of paper gaskets and poor manifold piece to collector clamps were anticipated by Enrique and he had high quality clamps/gaskets on hand which made everything go smoothly. They fit well and seemed like a good product with one exception. The EGR tube to the rear exhaust. (Thanks for the confirm Haro).... they don't make the manifold EGR area the same size as the factory tube. Therefore you must modify the EGR tube by cutting it down and hoping for a good seal. That was the one thing I didn't like. Otherwise.. seem like a good solid product.

Ed....stop on in The wrenches are waiting.

Funny how this is a thread about my car and I haven't posted yet. First I want to thank Bill for all his help with this refit. Bills expierence was vital to the sucess of this mod weekend. I paniced at least 12 times and Bill just calmly said there was a soultion and worked threw it. Pete, Carl, and Pat did 3 hockey puck mounts while I worked on the header install. I should right a review on the headers in a few days after I get everything welded up. It was great meeting Carl and seeing Bill, Pete and Pat again. It was one of the BEST weekends I have had in a long time. Thanks eneryone.

Karl I'm glad you made good use of our pucks! Probably from a Maple Leaf'* game..... since they don't know what to do with them, I'm glad you do!

Details are as follows:

(1) 8" long 1/2" bolt

(2) 1/2" nuts

(6) 1/2" washers

(1) 1/2" locking washer

(4) hockey pucks

Total: $8-9 USD

Jack up car, place stand safely to support the motor.

Remove the stock mount nuts one at the top and bottom. Remove the top right and left stud from the bracket, and loosen the third stud that is at the bottom right of the bracket. Swing the bracket up and to the right in order to pull out the stock mount.

Drill straight through the center of all four pucks (1/2" drill bit). Cut the 4th puck in half longitudinally, with hacksaw or if you have a better way do that. lol

Insert bolt from the bottom of the subframe, drop on a washer, drop on 3 full pucks, drop on 4 washers. Place bracket back over bolt, place on the puck you cut in half, followed by a washer, then the locking washer. Finally, tighten the mount (air gun is great) with one of the nuts. It will pull the motor down tight. Tighten the second nut on top of the first.

Tighten the bracket back up, remove jack stand/jack. Enjoy the vibrations in overdrive.
