comptech headers

i was talking to the technician at the local tuning shop that my friend owns. he said that the comptech headers will probably fit our accords. he told me that the comptech headers added 27whp to the cls'. i'm thinkin we should get similar gains with a header upgrade. who wants to give this a shot? i would if i actually had money...

The headers will not fit onto our engine, I believe the exhaust manifold is integrated into the engine block.

If he actually looked at your car and made that statement.....run, run far away!

tell your friend to prove his theory, tell him to buy the headers.. if it fits, you pay him back for the headers, if it doesnt fit, you get and sell the headers for a new toy..

Would the Comptech J-pipe have all the cats removed, or would it be CARB legal?

Sorry I'm a little slow in the head.


So with the aftermarket j-pipe, would we keep both pre-cats or eliminate them altogether?

there are 2 cats for each bank of cylinders( 3 cylinders each). those 2 cats are attached to a pipe that attaches to a third cat. the J pipe is that pipe.
