Bill -

I'm also in the market for a new 1500 header, as mine has bitten the 
dust after about 6 years of hard use.  I dismembered it yesterday to 
find cracks running in all 4 tubes as they enter the collector.  It's a 
PaceSetter header which has the 4 tubes coming together in a "square" 
formation, and the cracks were in the part of each tube that faced the 
center of the square.

I would probably look at the PaceSetter again, but would not wrap it 
this time.  

FYI: Places to get the PaceSetter header and prices:
CarParts.com, $132.47 for the black painted and about $245 for the 
ceramic coated.

Victoria British has black painted for 169.95

Other options that I know of:
Winner's Circle carries a chrome plated header for the 1500 in their 
catalog, but I don't know the price.  3 year pro-rated warranty.

Ted Schumacher (TSImported Automotive @ 1-800-543-6648) has a 1500 
header for 149.95  Knowing Ted, he probably has them made to his specs, 
but I'll be calling him later today to find out.

Let's compare notes on this.
