ryancivic has a little shameless behaviour in the past
headers are in

well i got my headers in last night. took me a while to figure out how to connect them to the rest of the exhaust because there are no welded nuts on them to catch the screws from the exhaust system. i managed to saw one off and use it and get a small clamp to seal off the other side. the stock gasket is too big as well. so next paycheck im going to see if a muffler shop can come up with a gasket that will fit and possibly see if they can just make a pipe that goes from the header to the hks muffler since its only axle. the power is acually very noticeable and i like the idea of not having a catalytic converter even though out in great california thats eventually a ticket
let me know what you think

i doubt you felt any diff. esp. from a shorty header. That is unless you got a high flow cat, even tehn the power gains are hardly there.

tsudocivic2k4 can only hope to improve
How long did it take you to put those headers on. And is there also a downpipe/testpipe with that

for the record, our cars only have one header.. not 'headers' (sing. vs. plural)

a v-6 or v-8 has headers
