Did you feel a loss of low end power? Also, did you get an o2 sim or not? Do you get a CEL? Just curious ;)

Oh yeah...how's the interior noise with that header? Is it louder? The same?

Did you install the ES Motor mounts? It prevents the engine from flexing back and forth, which will stop the header from moving around as much, I think the JR usually comes with a set of polyeurethane motor mount inserts. Sorry if this is old news to you guys, better to try then to not try at all :)

well i bought this header used for 435 shipped. I used a carsound high flow cat and i dont have a CEL yet. I have some ES motor mounts in my garage ill put in eventually. But first im gonna try to wrap the sway bar and take off the heat shield underneath my car.

You should save your money for hondata and do a K20A2 head swap.

NIce, if you got a camera, you should try and race a stock type-s or something and see who wins.

i wrapped the sway bar and it went away. What happend is Big Al's put my exhaust to high so it was vibrating against the bottom of my car making a ding ding ding noise so i wrapped and its gone.

I wanna race a stock type S. Ill start picking on them more :D

well tonight i raced a guy in a mustang with a 305, intake, pullies, exhaust, new gears and a intake manifold. We raced 3 times and the 2nd time i beat him by a car. The other 2 times he beat me by a car. The reason i know what he had is we pulled over to a store and talked and he popped the hood and showed me his stuff. It was a good race. the person said he ran a 13.9 best at the track but he wasnt hooking up tonight like he usally does, so im guessing hes around mid 14's?

anyways it was a fun night. :)
