    Well, I need a new header for my Civic with a GSR bottom end and B16 head. I know that the SI header and GSR will mount up to the head, but I was wondering if because the GSR has something like a 34mm longer block than the si, if I wouldn't be able to get the SI header. I am looking at a greddy header for 280$, so I would really like to be able to fit the SI header on my engine. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ian

    The Si header will fit, but it will rub on your oil pan. Get the GSR or an ITR header.

    Thanks for the advice calesta, I guess I'll just have to wait for a deal on the GSR header. What do you think of the Greddy Header anyways?

    Thanks

    I don't know about the Greddy header... never used one or knowingly seen one on a car.

    As for how bad the B16 header rubs, I'm not sure on that either. B16 headers tend to be shorter than B18 headers, and depending on the design of your particular header- the amount of rubbing may vary.

    If you can test fit the header on your car before you buy it, try that first... if the seller will let you.
