    well it is gonna be a header because it is a 4 cyl so there is only one therefor its singular ;) but anyway besides that no you are gonna want a header for a civic dohc vtec just like the plug wires...the header bolts to the head in place of the exhaust manifold

    a JDM ITR 4-1 headertech or comptech make good exhaust manifolds, as far as plugs\wires the stock ones are fine unless you running some crazy turbo setup.

    What year is the head? Im assuming 99-00 so that makes it OBD2? Along with this what year is the block, you have to realize the LS is two engines, B18A1 and the B18B1. Then tell me what this is going in?


    Now, DC is an entry level header, and they do make a version of the ITR header, however a DC header is NOT JDM, DC is made here in the USA.

    Again, it's header, not headerS. You own a HONDA.

    So therefore go with the JDM ITR header, it should fit no problem becuase the B18A/b/c all have the same deck height, where as the B16 has a smaller deck hegith. (Correct?)

    yes, JDM ITR should work

    for plugs, get either Denso or NGK.

    Yes, the B16A has a shorter deck height... but it's the pan and the girdle that effect the header fitment, not the deck height.

    i think the difference in deck heights between the b18 and b16 is less than 1 cm. its like 7 or 8 mm.
