    Ok, Im just wondering, Ive heard that the J-spec ITR Header is a very good header to use because of the 2.5 inch collector. Now If I do get this header, and an aftermarket exhaust what if anything would have to be done to the exhaust to prepare for the header. I have a four door integra GSR so I know if I do get an aftermarket exhaust, more than likely its going to have to be modified anyways, not many teg sedan exhausts out there, and on another note, I was looking at either the Tanabe Racing medallion, or the Skunk2, the skunk2 comes in a sedan model. But just the same, looking for opinions.

    Intake -> Engine -> Header -> Catalytic Converter -> Exhaust

    You most likely would have to modify your catalytic converter's flange to fit the larger collector. The exhaust system shouldn't have anything to do with it, unless you're getting a header that's got longer runners which go past the stock cat mount location, or if you're bolting a custom exhaust straight to the header and not using a cat.

    you'd have to modify it no matter what car you have, unless you have a JDM ITR. Its not a direct bolt-on onto any car, even my friends with ITR's had to custom fit it to the flange.

    Fuck cats, I say intake, engine, header, test pipe, exhaust....................if you are nervous about the popo then get your cats skeleton welded to your test pipe.

    some high flow cats will out flow a test pipe. A.Tao's does as dyno tested. That, and they save the air a little bit.
    plus, it makes it legal.
