    it does only read on one pipe. it has cracked as any cheap header should. the issue isnt the lack of flex, its the thin gauge material and shitty welds. once i rewelded mine its been fine for 50k. had it before the rebuild. had it since 09 or so.

    Is that the CXRacing/GodSpeed MK3 radiator? If so, good to know that the SC clears it, it's what I was planning on using!

    unsure of the brand but it is a mk3 rad. it barely clears.

    im working on a new setup right now. civic half sized radiator. going to make a proper mounting for it and all. should clear much better

    thanks for the pictures milky...yea back when this was on ebay i really thought about getting this header but the 02 sensor positioning was making me not. I kept asking around for info but it appears only ppl have the OBX one. So never bought it and now cant find it on ebay.

    That one looks like its better than the OBX one just for the fact that it has long runners.

    it made a noticable difference when i first installed it. changed the exhaust note quite a bit. quieter, deeper and less raspy even with no mufflers. lol but the mid range felt much better and top end screamed. down low was ok.

    Much of a loss down low compared to stock? Where do you draw your lines for low, middle, and top end?

    Do you think tuning vvt-i for the increased flow at lower speed can offset that?

    Fuck, who cares, I'm putting on a blower.

    You should do a head and ECU swap. Come through, we'll make a weekend out of it.

    I will have my ECU available after PFC, and all of the plugs to rewire it properly (no cutting or soldering). I think Milky might have a vvti head for cheap....
