    i have a 94 ex coupe with the D16z6 motor and auto trans. i have seen the chikara or whatever headers for like 139 from summit, will this header work ok for a while or will i be waisting money, i know what i want but then there is what i can afford, the stock o2 sensor welded itself to the stock manifold and broke off, i have done work to the topend but not the bottom, any opinions ?

    thanks....

    p. s. i live in las vegas, and i am not sure of the laws out here.

    So are you missing a o2 sensor? What work have you done to your "topend?"

    yes, missing o2 sensor and exhaust manifold is screwed up, i have had the head ported, valve job, intake manifold, throtle body, intake, and all the exhaust is stock, i havent driven the car for some time now, i think about a year or more.

    I would invest in a quality header (aka NOT blox, ractive)since you have those mods., figure on spending 300 - 500 for a good header.

    yup, with headers you def. get what you pay for- if a price is cheap the quality of the welds and material is cheap

    spend the money and invest in a header that will last you- that means fuck blox, ractive, chikara, pacesetter, etc

    I'd look into bisimoto, or something of that caliber. I don't know much about the D-series aftermarket, but DC definitely makes good headers for the price. Look into them.

    You guys realize this guy has an N/A d16 w/auto tranny right? Buying your basic I/H/E would be wasting your money...

    Hey, to each his own; just making suggestions. I'd ditch the auto tranny before putting money elsewhere.
