    What kind of power gains would I see from this Header? I have a B16A for those that don't know and I'm planning to go turbo in approx. a year so I didn't want to dish out $300+ for a DC sports Unit or better.
    Anyone have any experience with this header?

    Oh I see, I just wanted to bump my Hp a bit until I get my turbo setup, esp. since i can sell the NA Parts easily after. Thanks for the insight :)

    If you're going to drop money on a header, at least buy a used DC for the same price- it's higher quality, and you can still sell it for almost as much as you bought it for.

    Any and all reactive parts are junk! Do not even waste your time and money with that product.

    Oh if you buy it and sell it later..condsidering it is low end you might be lucky to get $50 for it!

    since your not going to be using it in the future just stick with the oem header.

    Remember where I live :D
    I'm pretty sure I can sell it for around $1000 TTD which is around $165US
    Thanks for all the input

    i like 4-1 DC headers. good power gains, but alot of clearance problems if ur car is low.
