good headers for my lowered accord

so hears the issue i have run into, i have read reviews and have come to some conclusions that dc ceramic headers are gonna be my only option, but i bought srs ebay headers and wack the down pipe and flex pipe on everything so now i have a pretty big hole on my flex pipe and the down pipe is taking some rough abuse. so my question is for all the really low guys what headers are you running ?? and have you had any of the same issues i have had? like i said i have read reviews and search and haven't really been able to come up with a good answer.

Re: good headers for my lowered accord

Just run stock, trust me. They handle better than all the aftermarket header available. Most people who went with the stainless steel either put a hole on the down pipe, welds cracked, and either cut the flex pipe and replaced it with a straight pipe (will give out also because as your engine moves, there isn't room for piping to move and will break a downpipe or so).

Re: good headers for my lowered accord

Vibrant header would be something you should consider, it doesn't hang low, its flushed against the oil pan.

If your low enough you will smash any header no matter what brand they are

Re: good headers for my lowered accord

I have to agree with sleeper..again. I recently swapped my DC header back to stock for smog reasons. I noticed immediately that she was idling more evenly and my throttle response was a little better. This made no sense to me so I took a closer look at my header and found that while it was still in pretty good shape it had a crack at the y. I'm not complaining about the Quality of DC headers. I've had that particular header on my car for 6 yrs and have been pretty happy with it. But I don't think I will replace it unless I come across a really good deal on another one.

Re: good headers for my lowered accord

My car is stock ride height. I didn't like how low my cheapo ebay headers hung. I cut and welded them to hug the oil pan closer. Of course they had a 45* bend not a 90* on the down pipe.

Re: good headers for my lowered accord

I'm tell ya bro the vibrant header might be your best option for lowered accord, plus you'll get decent gains with it too, it's been proven.
