    is there a difference between vtec and non-vtec headers? got a good deal on some dc sport 4 to 1 headers, but not sure if the will fit my b20.

    I was told a VTEC header would not work with a nonVTEC motor.
    I guess my info was wrong.

    finally got my header and put it on. it fits without a problem. only thing, it's too short (by 3 or 4 inches maybe) to fit with the stock piping. who in there right mind would have headers with stock piping anyway? :D

    look I'm tired of hearing this. Headers is correct. It originally comes from "head pipes" later the term was shortened to "headers" for a set of head pipes. This term did not change when hot rodders brought their head pipes together in a single collector. Even though your headers have only one collector they are still HEADERS. So for you know it all's with a header you must be running on only one cylinder. Fuckin' kids. Didn't your parents teach you anything.

    Sorry guy. Although the source of the term is correct, a V or boxer motor will have headers, an inline motor will still have a header. There is only one. Headers indicates more than one. :slap:

    header = one
    headers = 2 header
    head pipes = not header
    header term = has been lost
    headers is therefore header and accepted as such. anyways who cares... :p
    when my header comes in 4 seperate pipes i'll start calling them headers as they're seperate.
