PaceSetter Headers Any Good?

This is my first post on the forums so please correct me if i'm posting in the wrong section. Anyways i just got an 02 IS300 5 speed last week and was aiming to get dezod green headers. I need catted ones because of emissions. Then i came across these PaceSetter catted headers but can't find any videos or reviews. But they're only $440 compared to dezod which is $1,100. Does anyone know anything about them, how they sound? quality? are they high flow cats like dezod?

I'm also thinking about the pacesetter headers and was wondering if you ended up getting them? Or if anyone has these and can provide feedback on them? They're supposedly high flow cats so one can assume that it would yield a power increase while being able to stay emissions friendly.

Pacesetter has been around for a while. Never used them. I would figure that this is a OEM replacement and won't benefit you performance wise. (unless they are hi-flow cats)

Just looking at the website, it appears that the headers (and the cats, specifically) are designed as OEM replacements, so I doubt you'd see any hp gains, certainly not compared to Dezods.

I just bought them for my IS. They are good bolts up fine. I've have it on for less than a month now and the only problem is that it already started to rust a little where there y pipe connects .. I guess that's New England weather? Had a major exhaust leak before and it drives wayyy better! Not bad for $300.
