Changed my header from the 4-1 to an OBX-R 4-2-1
then it says: Sprinter JDM 4-1 header

well which one is it?
and why did you get the safc and vtec controller? why didnt you just get the vafc or hondata?
it looks nice though.

haha "performance wipers"
i think your next move should be some suspension work

i always say you get what you pay for... OBX isnt exactly quality parts... i would rather save a little more money and go for something that is far better quality... a lot of people will back me up on this one

yes i understand although you are not as familliar with obx as i am I understand and totally agree with you between some knockoff ebay shit compared to dc sports or w/e but i have built up my friends civic by replacing his dc header with an obx header and it gained him 2 hp on his gtec pro and it was less than 100 bucks and a 75 downpipe from obx I also put an obx cai and throttle body space on his car with a 10 hp gain on the gtec pro. obs makes grat parts they include tools and hardware and everything you need and the quality is obvious. why waste money when u can get more for less :confused

Do you know that 2HP on one of those, or a dyno for that matter, is considered THE SAME. If you pull 145 on one run, then run it again you might have a different number, say 143. These are considered the same. Now a bigger jump, say to 152 would be considered an increase of power. It's not considered "wasting" money when you buy a better, higher quality part and pay a little bit more. You'll learn one day....
