LX headers?

HEY guys been searching for months now and was wondering is HP or OBX the only header manufacturers that fabricate headers for us LX non-vtec guys out there? Also are there any adapters we can use that would enable us to use EX designed headers? ANY feedback whatsoever is greatly appreciated.

If you wanna run an EX header on your LX (like me), then you'll have to convert your exhaust. The downpipes are not interchangeable because the cat on the LX is in the header, and the cat on the EX is on the downpipe. And even if you are ballsy enough to say you dont need a cat, your still going to run into problems because of the angle the pipes are at, and the location of the sensors (2 O2 sensors to measure the output- 1 before the cat, and one after). I need to write up my dealy-o on how I did this. Hollars at me 1/ ?'s about the conversion.

Kamikaze is good stuff. Hmm, where does your catback connect to- just after the header's cat? If so, you'd have to get one of the pipes modified. With the EX downpipe, or the random tech pipe, it would connect just after the front swaybar.
