    personally, i'd go with a better header than the DC.. a good header will run about $1k +

    at least find the 98+ spec ITR header over the DC... either way it'll end up dented .. a GSR swap in a CRX sits low.. the header sits even lower..

    You could look into one of the Hytech replicas as well. I see those going for around the same price as the DC ones, and they make very decent power.

    i'd HIGHLY advise against the pullies.

    Aftermarket are not harmonic balanced.

    I believe hondas are internally balanced. You don't need a harmonic balancer.

    yea.. stay away from aftermarket pulleys ... even the CTR n1 crank pulley is bad on the motor

    s2s3's? Plan on never driving it on the street?

    And if you're doing a full build, why on earth are you using ctr pistons??

    Regardless of whether or not they're internally balanced, if you put an unbalanced pulley on the end, it's going to throw the entire thing out of balance.

    can you get them ballanced, or is it just a waste of time money and effort?

    so, thats's why you need a helper. It's much more satisfying to throw parts at them.
