    hey im looking at parts for my car and i was wondering what is the best header for the 1999 civic si... I want the best performance header but yet street legal.. It is my every day driver. So if you could just give me some good header brands that would be cool. Thanks

    DC headers are pretty dope if youre not gonna boost. And theyre legal in all 50 states.

    SMSP is pretty much the best one you can get
    DC is pretty much crap
    they are ok for mild tuning
    but they are FAR from the best shit out there
    they are popular cuz they are inexpensive and available EVERYWHERE
    just cuz a lot of people run it does not mean its the best shit out there

    E_Sol, you know i've never heard of SMSP. Please do tell more. Do you have any specs or pics, even possibly a link.

    I've always liked eom Honda stuff better than any aftermarket and IMO it gives your engine bay a cleaner look.

    Greddy headers run $400-500 and DC Sports are between $300-400.

    Hy-Tech. Expect to pay almost as much as you did for your car, but you will not gain more hp and tq from any other header. CTR is a good header for a B16.
    A little cheaper is the IB JG Edelbrock modified header, added 16hp to the wheels. I don't know how much they are, probably a lot. DC Sports ceramic coated are good cheap headers though.

    i cant actually compare the two... i have not run the SMSP
    i have the JDM ITR header its badass
    my next header will most likely be the SMSP or the HyTech
    the reviews ive heard and seen of both are very good... i have not seen any header produce better gains

    for under $500 i would recomend the JDM ITR or the Comptech

    for higher budgets i would recomend either the SMSP or HyTech (expect to pay $1000+)
