    Like the other guys said, the easiest way to do this is to just modify the civic harness to fit the new engine. You really don't want to rip out the dashboard to get to the harness back there. I know I wouldn't anyway...

    If you're considering DC I'd just go with Megan Racing. Their headers are pretty much the same thing for half the price...

    Race it how? On the street? On a drag strip? In a circuit race type event?
