I was talking to this guy about his car today and we wen tfor a ride. It was a 95 hatch i think and had a b16a swap. Now all he had done to it was put headers on it and a uni muffler. That thing pulled pretty hard. He told me that the header boosted it up like 20 ponies!!!! But it cost him like $2500 Can. Now is thsi guy full os crap or is this header add that much???

the mugen header isn't the greatest....I would try to get the Hytech or Toda header if your going to put down major coin on a header....otherwise JDM DC 4-1 seems to be a good bang for the buck...or the JDM ITR header.
A lot of people get heated over the Hytech/SMSP header comparison. The way I see it is Hytech has been doing R&D on headers for almost 20 years. SMSP is sort of a newbie to the scene. Don't get me wrong, they are the two best available but they do cost almost as much as I paid for my entire car.....I mean the difference between a $300 DC header and a $1500 hytech or SMSP header is a meager 5-8hp. Unless your hardcore and ballin' then I doubt anybody would go for the higher priced item.
Me, I would get the JDM ITR header....may not be the most perf oriented, but it's oem quality and I'll have it for 10 years if need be.:cool:
