I saw headers on ebay going for like 40$ are they any good or should i get a brand named manifold ?

There are some noticeable differences, but unless you're building something crazy, there's no reason to spend a lot on a header. One downfall of the cheap headers is that they tend to have fitment issues and aren't very strong. As for power gains, you wont notice a lot just from a header. It all depends on what you plan to do with your car...

IMO, Pacesetter are garbage. My friend had a pacesetter header for 6 months and it started rusting (though, driving it through winter on salted roads).

Im swearing to megan racing headers from now on. From my experience they are great quality and a good bit cheaper than other brands. I picked mine up for my 02 si for about $120 when the dc headers were about $300. Unlike picking up something from ebay they fit perfectly and came with all the parts you need.
