CARB LEGAL HEADER

I'm trying to figure out if this header is street legal. I live in Texas and we have the vehicle inspections and I don't have a buddy-buddy with a shop that can just pass me like I'm sure a lot of lucky people do. I have looked into HyTech, SMSP, and this guy Private Label MFG Power driven Headers H-series - Honda Prelude Forum - Prelude Online.com

I just don't know who to go with or which are CARB legal. I found some HyTech Replica's on ebay, $480ish and they said I can weld a hi-flow cat and lose about 8 hp, and the Private Label guy hasn't answered me back yet but, said he charge about $400.

Please help on this!!

Re: CARB LEGAL HEADER

for the most part any custom header, or any ebay header is not going to be "street legal." the ones that are "street legal," are the big name companys like DC, Greddy, Ect.

^x2, carb legal headers, intakes, etc will usually have a carb stamp or sticker on the product

Re: CARB LEGAL HEADER

you do have to pass emissions but, i was told from someone who has a smsp header with a random technology cat, he just drove around awhile before getting his prelude inspected and passed. if i do get a custom header, i will put the heat shield back on and give that a shot. i do have a megan header, just dont like it is a oem replacement that looks nice.
