    considering honda's well known reputation for making all of their power on the top end (esp. vtec models), i would ggo with 4-1 over 4-2-1 any day.

    honda's have no hope for low end.

    4-1 header like a motherfucker.

    dont bother trying to make a honda have low end its just not natural for them
    you want low end get a big block chevy or something
    or even an H1 hummer (195hp @ 3400RPM...... 430lb/ft @ 1800RPM) you could pull down a building with that thing

    i'm running a comptech 4-2-1 header.

    i will always take midrange over top end, simply because i auto-x and will be road racing...where midrange is most important.

    i will stick with my 4-2-1 until i have a better built motor, then i will switch to 4-1.
    i still think a 4-2-1 is better choice for a mildly moded(bolt-ons only) car on the street.

    I say 4-2-1 because from my own experience I get pretty good power throughout the whole powerband....My top end isnt that bad either.
