Default DNA motoring headers

Full 304ss plus cheaper than pacesetters. Anyone try these? Looking to install on my ‘94 hardbody 2wd ka24e.

Not many on here run headers. Most likely run thorley or pacesetter.

They look nice.

I've bought some nice looking headers on ebay before for my VG33 engine. They bolted right up and looked great, but the header's paths took them right over where the engine mounts needed to be. I don't know what the place was thinking that made them.

Anyway, just saying to keep the receipt, check the return policy, and don't throw the packaging away until after you have successfully installed that header.

whats the difference between a 4wd and 2wd specific header for the 4cyl? i could never figure out whats different since the front driveshaft is pretty low and out of the way (relatively)

Maybe (meaning I don't freaking know) the 4x4 header has to wiggle around the transfer case.

On my V6 2x4, I know the torsion bars are angled different.

My Pacesetter headers hit on the torsion bars. I had the headers cut a little so they could bend in some.

My V6 do (2wd, 2x4, whatever you wanna call it).

I don't know what the 4 cylinder world goes through.
