Headers

i was thinking of getting some headers on my 1992 xj. i dont want to spend a bunch of money. i would like borlas but dont want to spend that much. i have heard hat pacesetter headers are cheaper but might be prone to cracking?

these are even cheaper. wondering if anybody has heard of them or any advice on headers at all really would help alot. thanks.

Both APN and pacesetter are OEM replacement style. I've not heard of too many problems with either, but obviously the Borla's are better.

The obvious choice is a Jet-Hot coated Borla!

towards the bottom of this write up it says that ebay headers are not that bad anyways if you DIY. all headers are going to crack so why not get a decent one for cheaper?

Yeah sorry, Jet-Hot is a ceramic, heat insulating coating. It's hands down one of the coolest automotive things I've seen. You can run the header red hot, and put your hand 1" away from it and feel hardly any heat. It doesn't allow hardly any radiant heat out. It's cool.

But back on topic, yeah any of those will work, but you need to understand that to a point, you do get what you pay for. I've never heard of a Borla cracking. But man are they expensive!
