Kinda annoyed but these are not designed for my exact engine. Stange that one lines up and the other doesnt. Should I call pacesetter and complain? Ha!

Yeah, sucks for you guys but I'm pretty glad I stuck with OEM style on mine. I've had enough BS to deal with already, lol.

Haha! Im almost there. Probably gonna cut the y-pipe tomorrow, line up the header and figure out how to connect it again. Hope its worth it! It was cheaper than stock parts as I would have needed everything Y pipe forward including EGR and AIV lines. Heres to hoping for more power!!

Its always another thing isnt it. Oh, and my tags expire today!!

The shop that did my crossover pipe said that modifying the headers is out of their skill set. Looking at the weld job they did on that crossover, I believe them. They were cheap, though.

They recommended me to someone, though, and I'm supposed to take my truck to him to look at this evening after work. I have to drive the truck about 30 miles to get it to him, though. I hope all that driving isn't going to damage anything. There isn't much else I can do, though. Since the headers have been welded up, I can't even get them back off without firing up a cutting torch.

Haha yeah mine has new everything from heads to exhaust tips. I don't have any of that EGR or AIV stuff anymore. All the holes are plugged and that junk is gone.

It was cheaper to go this route but maybe not less work! The flange doesnt line up and it quite a bit out of wack right now. Didnt touch it today, too busy. Hope to make some progress tomorrow. Ill keep things updated.

Having serious nissan withdrawls. The superduty, while it has more power, is not nearly as fun to drive.

You guys need to look at these pics again. Look where the driver's side header is mashing against the torsion arm. That prevents the header flange from seating. They could cut it, sure, but that would pretty much mean cutting the headers off about 6 inches from the collector.

From Post 67:

Here's a thought for the driver's side header fitment. Would fitting an additional 3/8" steel exhaust flange ( from Weir-Tech) along with slightly longer exhaust studs shift the header away/outward enough to clear the torsion bar?

I also have a 2WD V6 Hardbody and have yet to figure out how to fit headers because of the 2WD torsion bars. The best I've come up with is Doug Thorley Headers with hacking up the B-Pipe. Yet, I'm not willing to drop $500.00 on a set of headers just to find out.

I wonder how many sets of 2wd headers the would need to sell before they would build some.
