i thought they didnt make a race header for the base. and i already have an exhaust so i dont want to get a type s race header (if thats what you were refering to). I dont want to mess with my ecu either. thanks alot for your input though punkdrum. your car looks awesome. what are you lowered on?

ha hes lowered on goldline! Go spend quick!!!! lets see. 250 for springs and install, and around 350-400 for headers and install
so your good for about 600 or 650. Race header would be nice but i dno how it would sound, u would lose the cat :(. Or you can donate to me and i can buy me a turbo and u can drive in it :)

you can put a type s race header on a base model by having a highflow cat custom fitted. all you have to do is cut the test pipe to make up for the extra gap.

I love my goldline springs, 140 and free for install because i did it myself.

springs are a definite now! going on monday to pick up a set. as for the shorty header...im getting second thoughts. i heard it does really nothing for perfomance (even though dc sports claims 6whp)! i'd rather save up more money for my rims next....hopefully. i dont want a race header cuz i wanna stay legal. LOL you think a shorty header would make my car sound nicer though??? if the header gives 6whp and good sound i might get it too! LOL ya think i can actaully get both installed for $650? that seems a little low considering i have to do everything local....

install it yourself. As for 6 hp....The hondata intake gasket is supposed to give you 5 hp and its only 60 bucks. I installed mine yesterday and i love it.

Interesting. We have shitty ford ZX2 that runs like my 12 speed moutain bike an a V8 dodge dakota that has number 3 in rollerover tests. Geo metro beating an RSX? Riiiiiiiiiight. Why come to an RsX forum and try to act tough? It gets u know where but flammed. If ur ever in illinois I'd like to prove to u te the RSX has more balls then bot of ur shitty cars combined. Ford escort! U have a ford escort! What an ugly ass bitch car. My buddy owns one and I give him a cars length head start and I still burn him. Don't try to come in here with a car like that and expect respect cause you'll get flammed just like the flammer u and ur car is.
