    Hey I was just wondering if any of you with this swap has had any clearance issues. I'm planning on doing this swap but my Del Sol is already quite low and I heard that the B18C's exhaust manifold (or 4-1 header if the engine I get already comes with one) might not have the best clearance. I know I can get custom made B-series headers but would like to avoid that option if possible. Please tell me what you guys think. Thanks guys.

    Its very possible that your clearance will suck. The only way to find out is to get the swap in and get it on the ground. Get underneath it a take a look. You might have to go extra slow over speed bumps and other dips in the road to keep from smashing that ITR header in.

    My car is dropped about three inches. I have a b16 with 4-1 header...and I only have about two inches, give or take a half inch, of clearance. I imagine with a b18 it will be a little closer than that.
