    ok well other than soundig like crap because im running open header it runs nicely. but i have a ? about the throttle cable. i used my stock one(93 civic hatch) and we were having a lil trouble getting it to idle right. is this becasue there is still some tention because ii have the cable bent around to fit on the gsr tb? has anyone had this prob? is there a better cable to use?

    and a ? about a good header to use alot of people say dc and other say that ebay crappy headers will work. but i want someting that will last a gve some good lowend power gains. also i am using one from an ls and there is ablot a 1 1/2 in gap from the header to the cat and the holes to bolt them up with dont match up. what header cat combo is easy est to bolt on?

    use the gsr cable if you are using the gsr manifold, an ls cable if you are using a skunk2/etc

    First with the cable I think its no more than $20 at the auto parts store.

    With the exhaust, flip the cat upside down and see if it fits then. If it doesn't fit, you can cut and weld new flanges on as your last resort, you'd be better off getting a cheap ebay cat and making that bitch fit. As for the gap, just pull that bitch closer, mine did the same thing but I needed to buy a new cat because mine was all fucked up.

    I think that the exhaust took me the longest to put on, I was riding open header for days before I finally got it to fit properly.

    did u use the stock gsr header because im not im using the 94-95 ls header so pullin it closer doesnt really work unless we had a pully system and wire. and with an after market header for my motor do i need a cat that is for a gsr or just get a civic one and turn it till the holes match up llike what 92civic said. thanks

    If you get a header get a cat that goes with the header (I.E. GSR Header- GSR Cat). No matter what you do get a b series cat or a universal one(has to be welded though).

    I had an LS in the civic with the LS header with a cheap ebay cat, maybe it's different with the GSR.
