well its as easy as first making shure that it is compatable with your car. 2nd you unbolt your muffler from your exhaust manifold. 3rd take off your exhaust manifold just by un bolting about 6 to 8 bolts form the top and bottom. 4th you just bolt the headers on to the same place that you took the exhaust manifold with the same bolt if they are not included in the header kit. 5th bolt it to the exhaust and bam your done!! putting headers on could boost you anywhere from 20 to 50HP. it is also a great add on to an engine that you are going to trick out because it get rid of the gases faster and also helps keep the heat off the engine.

If you are mechanically inclined, then it is fairly easy. If you never done any work on cars - forgetabouit.Good Luck.

I really hope you aren't seriously considering doing this. Don't put headers on a Civic, it's just moronic.The first person to answer is completely wrong. You won't gain 20-50hp on a Civic. With your car you'll be lucky to gain 10HP, putting you into the 120HP range...wow! You won't even notice the difference. Want to do something to your car that'll make it faster? Go to a mod shop and ask for something called a 350 wetshot. That should give you about 240hp for the 10 seconds your engine can take it before it's blow to oblivion.As far as the install, it's really easy if you have even a remote clue what you're doing. You clearly don't though!You need to understand that you drive a commuter car. It's not a bad car by any means, its a great little car...but it'll never be fast. Stop trying.
