I picked up a pacesetter for mine its a 2.5 but no problems so far. you definatly need a new one, DONT WELD! I had a buddy do a weld job on one of his rigs and it didn't do a very good job because 2 days later it cracked. banks, borla, gibson they all make good headers. I found that ebay wasn't always the best solution, some auctions have high prices and like to mess with you. check around online and see if you can find better prices. I think I bought mine on http://www.autocom.com/catalog/shopp...rtNo=P40701138
these guys have pretty reasonable prices and free shipping on $100 + orders. good luck with the search let me know if I can be any more help.
