    The only thing that i've ever heard is get the header for the engine in the car. So I would say to get a b18c1 aka gsr header.

    some B16 headers can be too short to clear the oil pan
    get one for a B18 and be done with it

    I bought a header for a B16 and it doesn't clear the oil pan of my B16a by quite a bit. Hence, my aluminum block adapter plate. Only temporary until turbo. That lower section of the header is going to have a hard winter, cause its practically scraping the ground. Did I mention its temporary?

    gsr's came with two different header configs. the collector location is different. make sure you know which year you need to get before ordering.

    im not 100% sure but i think you would be safer ordering a non vtec integra header or even an itr. can anyone confirm this.
