Is there a significant difference between the Type R and Type S header performance wise, like how there is a significant performance difference between the B-series GSR header and type R C5 header?

yes, the TypeR header is better for higher RPM gains. they are two different layouts.

The TypeR header is most likely going to pass California smog tests. I can't see it not passing, lets say that. It will bolt directly to a stock TypeS cat back, but it won't pass the front sway bar.

I'm more interested in how the Type R header compares with the DC Race Header since they are pretty close in the price range.

DC RH will produce more gains the the ITR exmani, but isn't SMOG legal.

well i have the hotchkis front swaybar, i wonder if it will pass it... unless i have to get the toda swaybar
I doubt it will clear, unless they re-designed it. I'd call them and ask. Only other choice is the Toda or the Whiteline sway bar.

Here's a picture of the difference between the Type-S and the Type-R header. You can cleary see which is better.
Great pics! Thanks for sharing. You know, every time I see Type-R parts and think of all the extra stuff the Type-R has over our Type-S, it makes me wonder how all of this good stuff only adds up to a total of 20 flywheel horses...

yeah, I think Hondata underrated alot of their cars. The Type-R has alot better parts.

Wouldn't surprise me.

The interesting thing is that a lot of people here expect 15 or 20 horsepower from just a couple of cheap bolt ons when it takes Honda:

- higher compression
- a higher flowing intake manifold
- a far superior header
- hotter cams
- and who knows what other tweaks

to go from our 200 to their 220.

I wonder what the Japanese do to soup up their Type-Rs.

Don't forget the tweeked ECU and better flowing muffler.

Same thing we do, I would assume. Toda, Top Fuel, Skunk2, etc. or FI. I can't wait for Skunk2's cams to be released.
