What gains did you see from it?blanezx3 said:I liked it and never had any problems at all. If anyone says different, ask if they actually used it.
It's a very quiet 2.25" exhaust system. Good gains, but if you're worried about that extra 2whp you can get from others then you're going to need to take the resonator out.
poisonivory said:thats the only thing i've heard bad about pacesetter, the quality of welds and such. as stated above, for the most part, a cat-back is a cat-back. But pacesetter is probably the lowest quality of the bunch (when compared to Borla, Magnaflow, FS, etc.).. If you HAVENT already bought it, and you're looking for something cheap, consider MBRP..not as pricey as the rest, but still damn good. I got mine for 230 shipped to my door and love it.
Is the inside of the tip actually painted yellow? That seems pretty ugly to me.blanezx3 said:I recommend it.
There are pros and cons to every system. Here's my list:
It fit perfectly
Extremely quiet exhaust (quieter than stock according to FJ)
2.25" aluminized steel pipe, painted black. (mine didn't rust after ~2yrs)
Welds were actually very good
Tip left a lot to be desired
Not made of stainless steel
Some people like to hear their exhaust. You'd need to take off the resonator to really hear this one.
Oh I've used PACESETTER in the past, not on my focu but regardless, twice actually, both times it was aweful. I should have learned the first time.......blanezx3 said:01Kona: Honestly, the only difference I can tell in the Borla I have now and the Pacesetter is the fact that it's louder. That's it. I had a header, highflow cat, and flex on BOTH and it felt exactly the same.
Anyway, I give up. People who have heard bad things about the products tend to repeat them without using them. This is why I said "I liked it and never had any problems at all. If anyone says different, ask if they actually used it."
I'm one of the FEW PEOPLE ON HERE who's used it. It isn't crap. You can have your opinions, but judging a product without actually using it isn't the best thing in the world. That would be like me saying that Tom's turbo kits are crap without having used one.
I just sold mofocus my old pacesetter header. If HE trusts it enough to put it on his car (which has seen more than it's fair share of performance modifications) I'd say it's not a crappy item.
