Factory Cast Iron or Pacesetter

Looks like my factory exhaust manifold has a hairline crack ,and im out to replace it, I can get a factory one for 90 shipped or a pacesetter header and downpipe from summit for bout 170. is the pacesetter a decent peice or is it a p o s. Also, what bout broken bolts in the head, Am I destined to break some in the process? thanks for all the advice,

PS Iv seen the banks header but just cant afford it. I need to be done with this job in the 200 dollar range. any help will be greatly apprecieated

I have it on my 97 (4.0L) and it's been on their for about 5 years now and i personally don't like it at all. Where the two pipes go into one i can never get a exhaust leak to go away. (It might get welded together after awhile) I also don't like the routing of the exhaust pipe when it goes over to the passanger side. It sort of kicks out right under the lower control arm. At full droop, my control arm is sitting on the exhaust. Other people might not have these problems, but i do. Wish i would have gone with something else. My cat was rattling too but i fixed that problem.

I had a Pacesetter cat-back on another car a few years ago. It quickly rusted and did not fit properly. I got what I paid for.
