    what make are they?
    I'm gonna guess the bottom one for the reason that its 4-2-1 style.

    agreed.
    Daily Driver/ricer = 4-2-1 design (bottom one)
    keeps some low/mid power.
    i dont like my powerband crammed back towards redline.

    one is good for more mid to high end breathing, and one is good for low to mid

    sorry i cant remeber correctly so i wouldnt want to tell u false information


    (now when it comes to v8's ) (MUSTANGS!!!)

    shorty headers are for low to mid, and full lengths are for mid to hi breathing!

    header

    i have the top one on my 91. i would have to say it has more mid, once you start reaching redline it doesnt have as much power as you want. the top one they sell everywhere, if i would have caught the bottom one some where thats prolly the one that would be on my car now

    I have the top one and it works fine for AutoX, other than that I could give two craps less. :lol:

    I have had the bottom one for 1 yr now .. and I have had to get it replaced 2 times in that time. It is a poor design with the ball mount. See on that header ( top one ) it rotates on that ball mount with the torque of the motor and that ball wears and breaks. I know it has happened 2 times. So this time my 3rd header now .. I cut the downpipe that came with it. .... I cut 10" out of it and put a flex pipe right there. It has only been a few weeks now but from what I can tell ... it isn't moving at all. Just a poor design of a header that is all .. The pacesetter rep says that one isn't for daily driving that is why I broke 2 of them.

    I was just going to cut it at the ball joint and weld it together and put a flex pipe at the end of it.
