    Best Header for everyday driving

    What is the best header for everyday driving? It is a 91 GS.

    #2
    honestly, the best header for every day driving is the stock exhaust manifold

    you need to want some performance gain and have some goals for the future...that will help you decide.

        I like my DC 4-2-1 ceramic for everyday driving. It may not yield the most performance gains but it holds up well and gives good ground clearance so it doesnt scrape if I hit something.

          Yeah I was looking for horsepower and torque gains.
          Also the best prices and most reliable company?
          Thanks

                comptech doesn't even make a header for our year.

                  if you have no other mods to the engine, why not just stick with the stock oem header? no point in wasting money if everything else is stock. an aftermarket header will only work efficienty once the whole system(i/h/e..various other parts) are changed to work in harmony.

                  if you do have other mods, it would have been helpful to list them in the first place to help determine what header might be better for your setup.

                      I can 3rd that, but if reliable performance is what your after, then

                      K&N filter w/ removed resonator
                      JDM ITR 4-1 with heatshild
                      Carsound cat
                      The exaust of your choice (about 2.25" diameter)

                          Ceramic coated airmass. Way cheaper than the DC... pretty much the same design. I think they may even get their stuff from DC?

                                I like my dc sports 4-2-1 ceramic, works good, with good performance gains (pulls in 2nd gear now). I got it new for $200, which is at dealer cost.

                                  Airmass is DC, just their repaired fuck-ups

                                    Thanks everyone for the replies. I appreciate it.

                                    Sorry for posting everyday driving. I meant not a race track car.
                                    I do drive this car almost everyday.
                                    I have no other mods yet.

                                    I am just trying to think ahead because I might have an oil leak around the factory header, or may have to take the factor header off to get to the oil leak.

                                    So, if I am going to take my factory header off, I might as well replace them with something better. Just what I was thinking.

                                    Are the DC sports headers on ebay legit?
                                    Also what is better 4-2-1 or 4-1?
                                    Thanks

                                      Better as in... what?
                                      If you're not planning on doing much, it doesnt really matter. low end, high end, etc. Just get the cheapest one. If you're looking for the best gains, then the header is not all that is gonna matter. I/H/E meaning one of those is a very small gain without the other two. Sounds like you just want a little upgrade since the part is coming off anyway. In that case, both will benefit you 4-2-1 or 4-1. But if you're gonna decide according to future parts that will be installed, then those would be nice to be considered when choosing which one would be the best for you. If i was you, I'd just grab a ITR header. Decent upgrade compared to your stock header. But don't forget the other aspects of the upgrade, Intake, Exhaust etc.

                                        does that even make any sense? its good because of its price, but, its not cheap?

                                          I'm thinking he means the best price : performance ratio

                                          As in the pricerange.

                                            I was always under the impression that Airmass is a division of Holley.

                                              will a car with a header sound any different rather than one with a stock header? cai being involved to?

                                                Straight from the words of airmass. They told me airmass gets DC's messups and repairs them and slaps their tag on it and boxes it up.

                                                  I will eventually probably do:
                                                  cai
                                                  exhaust
                                                  pullies
                                                  cams
                                                  clutch
                                                  Supercharger
                                                  etc.


                                                  I will proably do the header first to get that out of the way since the oil leak is somewhere down around there.

                                                  I was looking for more lower end power/torque.
