where can i find good headers for cheap and will i see much of a benifit from them if i already have an empty cat and a fart can muffler? im not 2.25 all the way yet, its 2.25 from the muffler to to about the rear passenger side wheel, so i need to get it 2.25 from there to where my empty cat ends.i dont want anything fancy just functional, so used is better for me.

The megan headers are maybe the best performance/price bolt-on item. Stainless Steel Megan Headers in header wrap are just as good as DC-sports are Greddy for $200 less. Can feel difference in the 65-80mph range.

Been thinking about getting a megan header as well. A friend of mine bought one off the site that is linked above and loves it. And he has a DC Sports on his other car.

I'll be using my stock manifold until after I finish the mini-me conversion and swap in an EX tranny. Then I'll be getting a megan header as soon as I can afford it.

I really should lower the car someday though :(

it is a nice piece, BUT, its just about the same as any other "standard" header. You will only see an actual gain out of a header like an SMSP. But I would imagine thats out of the range you want to spend. Also its a 2 piece, and while thats not bad at all, I prefer 1 piece. To be entirely honest, I got a cheapo stainless to be wrapped in heat wrap to drop the temps, and loose some weight, not to get any power gains.

company that makes top end headers. Really really good stuff, but like I said, its not cheap, and actually does give an actual noticeable power gain, but for what its worth, unless you are trying to sap as much power as possible out of an engine, there are more cost effective alternatives.

like how much are they $1000?
honestly ive never been about making my car fast, just wanted a newer stronger motor, i just didnt expect it to be so good, even for a badly treated jdm, im kinda intrigued now about going faster but its no where near a priority for me, i got my daily driver back i hope and with a little more pep so im good but tryn to learn as much as i can on here now.

been busy. got the y8 pulled apart in a couple hours, brought an engine, and 2 tranny's home with me, took photo's of my bro racing moto-x / hare scramble... and been doing homework. haven't been on since friday really...

but anyway, there's a picture on that thread and telling all about the header. i just saw your thread and thought of them, since you had said some used for cheap... $100 shipped obo isn't bad i didn't think. but everything is going to ebay in about a week. i have to get this stuff outta my house.

bah, it's all good. i'm not trying to get pissy with you, but re-reading my statements that what it seems like...anyway, it was just a whole lot easier to sell, and transport that way.
