    I currently have a DC Sports 4-1 header on my JDM B16a motor but it has a big dent in it. I want to get a new header and was wondering if there are better one's out there or should I just buy a new DC header? It's on a 90 crx if that makes a difference?

    I had thought of that but was seeing if people knew of any better headers because if they said get a new DC I was just going to fix the one I got. Thanks though!! :D

    well, for the cost, i would just get another dc. i had one on my b16 and it was great. people will reccommend other headers but the dc is the way to go.

    SMSP is the best but you really pay for it i heard that they are around 1200 or so and take a while to get because there is one guy making them by hand

    Okay that's alittle out of my price range right now. I was thinking of spending no more than $600-700 at the most.

    are the fake ones close enough to the real JUN to be effective for the cost?
