Re: Header or Short Throw

headers won't do squat.

unless you spend serious money on a header, youre not doing anything but putting something shiny under the hood. most headers are an OEM equivalent or perform even worse. do the SS. i have the PSPEC one and i love it. that combined with my mugen shiftknob is probably one of my favorite mods. youll feel much more of a differance with a SS than a header. unless of course you buy a HYTECH replica or spend $850+ on another brand

Re: Header or Short Throw

Huh, I would have said a good header for the performance upgrade, but UPSLuder is Uber, and he has a point, a lot of headers dont do squat, but if you have the money a header will increase your performance. Shifter improves feel (and maybe shift time if you get down to the details). So feel, or a couple HP? Do you have an exhaust plan, ie epic cat with a no resistance muffler of doom, at which point you would want a good big header. IDK, I need sleep. Peace, GL

Re: Header or Short Throw

I say header if your willing to put down some serious money. But if your looking at like a dc header or something along those lines, I def say go with the pspec short shifter.

Oh and GOOD brands for a header, hytech or hytech replica, smsp, mugen, rmf....those are the only headers I would spend any money on

I have looked everywere for a better price and failed. I just coughed up the $200 and bought it off the Pspec site. You can also looked for a used one on the forums but I'd reccommend a new one. I'm still in the split process of installing mine and all I can say is it is a pain in the ass! But will be worth it. A good header will only be good on a full exhaust TUNED. With the money spent on one of those headers I'd rather just use it towards boost lol. Oh and I also highly recommend the skunk2 shift knob with it as well!

Re: Header or Short Throw

you could always get the JTC Customs SS for almost half the price of the PSPEC and it has gotten just as good of reviews. 97-01 Honda Prelude Short Shifter : JTC Customs

The thing that made me choose the pspec instead is that the jtc hits the console on it's shortest throw setting even if you trim around the area which is a no no for me. Ups I'm not stuck anymore. Only reason this install is taking long is because I have no time to work on it during the day, by the time I get to it, it is dark and cold out. It took me a long time to get the damn cable clip out, I soaked it with liquid wrench and used a combo of pliers and a flathead to pull it out.

Re: Header or Short Throw

Neither is really gonna do you good. The header alone won't do poop but the short throw is bad for the tranny :p i would recommend finishing the exhaust not just header

legit the dumbest statement I've heard in a while. do you even know what you're talking about? you don't throw sh*t. the "short throw" aspect of it describes the distance your hand moves. shorter distance = faster shifting, even if it is a fraction of a second. plus it feels much better

Re: Header or Short Throw

Going into gears faster than the manufacture intended can be bad for the tranny. It's just like speed shifting but doing it all the time now because it's shorter and goes in faster. But you guys are the experts, just what I think.

Re: Header or Short Throw

it doesn't going in faster. however fast you shift depends how fast it goes. shortshifters shorten the DISTANCE YOU MOVEYOUR HAND. what takes longer, going 1 mile or going 1/4 mile. sake principal

True dat. But if you have a short throw then you're more tempted to go nuts with speed shifting and it's double bad cause you're speed shifting (not manufacture intended) and with double the speed cause it's half the height ( also not manufacture intended) so in the long run I just think it'll probably wear your tranny more.

"True dat" neglects any arguement you possibly had.

If you find a short shifter that's half the height of factory, your hand would be down inside the shifter console.

Lol people are so hostile I'm just sayin if you have a shifter shorter than stock it's bad for the synchros when speed shifting which is all the time for me.
