Toda,Spoon, Mugen, Comptech are the BEST out there. Only problem is that they cost an arm and a leg and dont make them for your D-series engine....except for Comptech.The best you can buy for cost effectiveness and that will fit your D-series engine...DC Sports, Greddy, Edelbrock.I would recommend the DC Sports or Greddy header.I have had a DC Sports 4-1 ceramic coated header on my 00 Civic Si Coupe for about 3 years now...I like it too, the ceramic coating looks great and I've never had an issue with it.

look at it this way every brand name has 1 7/8 ,1 3/4, they all do good for performance the best one for you is all about dyno lol this will help in the long run nothing out there will help the HX civic with performance its made for gas mile efficient you will have to change out the 8 valve head to anything more than performance like a new motor or something with more torque

Save your money for something else. You have a good car, but a performance header isn't going to do much for you at all in itself. The others are right, you really don't have much to build on with that vehicle performance wise. The bones just aren't there.

Dont tell them to pocket your money for a b-series. EVER. I have a d15b7 and am swapping with a d16z6 and im rebuilding the internals to be able to handle 250 horsepower which will be achieved with 12 psi of boost from a garrett turbo... my little project... if anyone ever tells you to kill your d16 tell them to go jump! there are plenty of people who will tell you the same... these things in general have cheaper performance parts and hold just as strong as long as you get a good tune... go to www.turbod16.com and look at what people are doing... I guess you have a d16y7 or 8.... same thing applies to them... great car to boost... just know what youre getting and you get what you pay for....oh and your headers... yeah dont get them and buy a turbo manifold for your turbocharger dont worry about an intake either, they come with the turbo kit... ebay is in the most part not the way to go with turbos btw... knock off turbos they are .... anyway... have fun but if you dont wanna do that, the Intake exhaust combo is nice, but really wont work wonders like you think it will... i put intake, headers, high flow cat, and muffler with silencer out and i got maybe 6 to 8 horses... big woop.... get a turbo and with 8 psi youre looking at 170 to 190 horses and to the person below... whats the weight on that GSR motor?The displacement of such a small engine getting these numbers are great, its natural for larger engines...
