Ebay 2.8 headers vs Pacesetter 2.8 headers

So I was gonna get the 2.8 headers off of Rockauto for around 240$ but they ran out of stock. So I found some on ebay for 200$$. Looked to be the same . I guess they are knockoffs. But now I'm just wondering if anyone has ran these without any problems? They look ok. Heres the link for the ebay ones. https://www.ebay.com/itm/172682129262

I can't speak for those specifically, but in general some people have had issues with ebay headers not quite lining up to the ports, having a hard time bolting them on without some kind of modifications. The big thing would be to see what their return policy is, then decide from there.

I would be SHOCKED if someone else out there decided to make headers for these things. brings a tear to my eye. but I'd bet they are made by pacesetter.

Hopefully they are. They appear to be well made. I will test fit them today see if the holes line up.

Re: Ebay 2.8 headers vs Pacesetter 2.8 headers


Went to remove my stock manifolds for a test fit. All the bolts came off except one, that broke off in the head. I was pissed off because it was coming out then all of a sudden, snap. . Thanks to harbor freight I was able to drill right through it with some left hand drill bits and a screw extractor. I've never attempted this and was scared I might break the bit or the screw ex. Just have to take your time and start with the smallest bit and move up from there. They fit great just had to move the oil dipstick out of the way. Wish I had gotten the coated ones better.
