MUGEN Parts

Before I begin, I have done a small search and do not seem to fully understand. I am interested in purchasing a Mugen header for my h22. I have been reading a lot about authentic and non-authentic. I see options on ebay for some hondas, the desciption states oem mugen header. Do did Mugen parts come as an oem option? Thanks in advance for any replies!!

Re: MUGEN Parts

No they did not. It refers to bolting to a stock exhaust manifold.

Good luck finding genuine mugen. And be prepared to spend a lot of cash

Re: MUGEN Parts

They are like the venerable Loch Ness Monster. Almost never seen. If you are lucky enough to find one expect to pay anywhere from 700-2k for one. Those that have them tend to know exactly what they have and usually don't want to let them go unless the money is right.

Geniune Mugen H22 Header.

I've seen as much as 12hp with a tune. Not much but every little boost is noticeable when you know your ride.

Re: MUGEN Parts

Ok guys thanks! here is an example of what I was looking at. JDM Honda Integra DC2 B18C B16A 4 1 Mugen Header Extractor EG6 EF Civic EK9 | eBay It clams to be 100% OEM. Only reason im looking for an OEM header is because I circle track race and rules state it must be an OEM header. Ive seen that the H22A7 oem headers are a lot bigger but impossible to find. Any ideas? Is there a stock header that performs better than the standard H22 header and is more readily available?

H22A Type R and Type S headers have 2.25 collector and rest of exhaust

type r has slight bigger tubing, type s have different shape



"Exhaust
By lowering the intake resistance and making an engine that burns efficiently, Honda needed to finish its tuning job by allowing for the exhaust to get out smoothly. The exhaust manifold, while retaining its outer diameter, had its opening size increased. The dual-pipe design to follow was made truly cylindrical, (as opposed to oval) and the wall lining was made to 15mm -- decreasing exhaust interference.

The catalytic converter was also increased in size, and the exhaust piping increased from 50.8mm to 57mm. The silencer efficiency was increased from 97 liters/second to 113 liters/second. This completes the improvements made on the air flow efficiency of the Prelude Type-S. "

Re: MUGEN Parts

Glad you posted that diagram T.
I read the opposite, that the output was made oval in the 99-01 usdm and all type s. Thanks.

Re: MUGEN Parts

Make sure u get the down pipe with that header as well unless u decide u want to custom one. I have a Jasma header for H22 but doesn't have the mugen logo on it. Some say Mugen/Jasma were the same but that was a 50/50 arguement.

Re: MUGEN Parts

JASMA is a quality rating thing in Japan like the ISO 9000 or whatever the hell it is. A few companies have that stamp of quality on them.

Re: MUGEN Parts

from what i have experience on mugen headers its almost like dc headers.

back in 2006 to 2008 i did b series motors ls vtec b20 vtec poorman`s type R etc i never had any much gains on headers even the dc headers 4-1 headers i had about 13hp gain with good tuned. back in 2009 i borrowed my friends mugen headers to see how much gains on my b20 vtec on my integra DA and it only did 10-12 hp gains with good tuned. i dont have anymore of my old dyno sheets to prove it but IMO mugen headers is not really worth it unless your into jdm car shows or what not.

but depending on your taste of product to me its not really worth it on performance just for looks.

Thats for a completely different motor. Try getting that much power from a dc sports header on a h series. Dc sports for h motors are pretty much stock replacements. The mugen does make gains on h motors. B series and h series are not identical bro

Re: MUGEN Parts

^I,too, think DC Headers are pretty much stock replacements. IIRC, They're not much lighter than the stock headers, either. TRIVIA TIME(I learned this today), Back in the early 80's, Honda actually offered Mugen parts to the U.S. Market. And we had no interest in it....Thus it was shelved. I find that slightly amusing, given the demand for it now.

Jasma isn't a brand. JASMA stands for Japan Automotive Sports Muffler Association. It is the Japanese certification for mufflers and exhaust systems. Like our CARB certifications.

mugen gets gains, dc does not. It's not worth the cost, it's just for rareness factor and quality of construction mainly.

p.s. that picture of a mugen header from your partout of the yellow lude is a junk... all the welds at the flange have been redone, and very poorly at that.
