dc sports header installed
 
Hey guys....just installed my dc header today.....there's not that much gain....but you can feel a little difference....as far as looks....they look very nice....but i havent really noticed a huge power gain....but overall i give it a 5 out of 10....let me know what you guys think

Do you have any pics to post?

You don't feel ANY powergain? How does it sound?

do those cheese cloth lookin wrapping fabrics work? ive seen ppl wrap up there header with that.. it suppose to keep it cooler?

I think it acts like a heatshield. So the hot exhaust gases don't affect ambient air temperature of the engine bay. Our stock headers came with a heatshield btw but it is a metal one.

Hopefully you dont feel a huge power gain! Your not supposed to get it too hot for the first while, which means keeping the RPMs low for a couple days!

just wait till we get a downpipe with a racing cat- idcivic has one from ebay and he says it works wonders.

Dave 04-12-2002 02:17 AM

Yeah, with the stock downpipe and the close couped(sp?) cat. There really isn't much gain. Sure do look nice though.

IDQcivic 04-12-2002 04:10 PM

Yeah I put the racing downpipe on, its a good combo with the DC header, only problem is I am not using the 2nd o2 sensor, I am about to hook up an o2 simulator I bought that simulates the cat's readings at different RPM's. I just gotta figure out the wires to hook it on my ecu!
