hehe...f20 civic...there is a crx with spray rolling around here on that set up. pretty sick. And 1200 for a header that gets 7whp?!?! I spent 500 on my whole exhaust set up..and its like 30+hp.
yes 1200 dollars for a header. look at some hyatech stuff. they're paying bmw prices for mods hehehehe...f20 civic...there is a crx with spray rolling around here on that set up. pretty sick. And 1200 for a header that gets 7whp?!?! I spent 500 on my whole exhaust set up..and its like 30+hp.
i dont know where you were looking, but when i was about to buy an e36 m3, the prices were only 20-30 bucks higher than dc5 parts.Fuck. And that is one reason why I never got a bmw...I wanted a e30 m3 soo bad...saw prices for mods and I thought my eyes were going to pop out of my head. 2k for exhaust, 7k+ for basic blower/turbo applications, suspension was bad. Fuck that. And that is one reason why I love my car....We don't have the vette tax on our parts lol.
well what do you think, parts are going to be cheap for a car that was originally $60k? You are lucky to get a used e46 M3 for less than $25k
yeah i hear you on that shit. i put cheap shit on the civic cause its a civic. But the dc5 gets quality parts. Same for any bmwTrue True. Like FAST for lsx motors...1200 for an intake mani, 3-400 for TB. And I miss read...I thought you said e46, not e36. 36 parts *should* be cheaper. But when it comes to parts...of course you could buy the cheap shit (Like I did on my budget build), or you can get the proven parts. Ebay header vs koos stainless LTS. $400 vs $800. Cheap ass $300 catback, or a Corsa which is now $1200. Proven parts will cost more. I know if I had the coin on a e46, you better believe some of the best parts are going on it. Same if I had a NSX or a legit ITR.
yeah you gotta pay where it counts.Thats kinda how I am. I got used parts for the exhaust, but for the valvetrain....I dont skimp on the vitals. I will eventually buy the quality stuff (full stainless exhaust, the FAST mani when I do my stroker, FISKE or iForged wheels), but as of right now....I am a broke college kid, so I got to go cheap lol.
dude megan makes a quality header. i put one on my civic that i got off ebay for 150 shipped and its been on there for 4 years without any issues. no cracking or anything. its a solid header at a super cheap price.......fuck. Thats right, SSautochrome, not XS...whatever. Shit. Quality parts through and through. How is DC for headers? I've read somewhere about them splitting welds, but idk. Or Megan?
