I don't normally work on Honda's, but I'm doing a friend a favor. The stock manifold on his 1997 Honda Civic DX Sedan is cracked as well as his intermediate pipe. He doesn't want the exhaust loud he wants it stock sounding and cheap. I've been looking and I can't find a header for the DX model. Evidentilly it has to do with the positioning of the cat on the manifold. I need to know what the cheapest and fast way would be to get a new manifold or header on there as well as the intermediate pipe. A garage quoted this guy 1300 for all stock parts and labor. I want to try and do it for 600 or so including labor. Please HELP. FYI. I did a search on the forum and saw no mention of this particular issue.

Well to get the most out of his motor and keep it cheap, and not to mention better for the long run, switch him over to a Ex/Si exaust route. You will need a header, and all the piping to the exhaust. I do have the stock axle back exhuast if you would like to but it for cheap. As far as the headers, id check ebay, you could probably get pacesetter header for around 150...but id look for a stock one if at all possible. Basically with this set up you will be making the engines exhaust route to an ex. As far as the intake manifold you will need one off a DX or Lx unless you feel like converting it to an ex as well. One thing is that as you see his intake manifold is stright up and the ex/si is to the side. This could hurt him if he has an after market inatke already on the car.

Thanks

Thanks. I've been told I could convert it totally to an EX. You have everything from basically the header back for an EX? Will it fit on the 4 door? If so I'll take it. You want 125 or so for it? So after I get that all I'll need is the header and the cat correct? I know I'll have to extend the wires for the 02 sensor to fit in the cat.

All i have is the axle back exhaust portion of it...so from the rear a-arm back i have, you still need to get the rest Header, cat, pipe ect..
