    well first off you just need 1 header, not headers. second...if you install the header just take it to your local exhaust shop and have them do the mods that are needed to make it all connect. you shouldnt have to replace much of anything...maybe a gasket or two. good luck man.

    either install your self and drive (loudly) to the shop, or ya...have them do it i guess. and i dont know what it will cost each shop is different. do some research and pick what will work best for you.

    They should hook up in place of the stock, you shouldn't need any extra length of pipe or anything.

    And why are you bothering to upgrade your manifold if from the cat back is still the same?

    Edit: I have a megan header on my 89 crx, i can't say if it's different for sure than the stock, as my stock was very hacked together. My logic is that a CAT back system bolts up right after the cat, so that should be the exactly the same as what you have. It would only make sense that a header that directly bolts up to a cat back would bolt up to stock.

    Yup, quality headers will just bolt right up, unless its a custom thing. And if you have a V-6 accord, its headers.

    You know, I'm going to go on a rant, its always fucking headers, unless you have a one cylinder motor. Just because the flange attatches them together, they are still headers.

    Yeah, fuck you all. Headers ftw.
