New header, down pipe and muffler.

So my mechanic who is a close friend of ours stripped an Integra (I think it was an Integra, possibly Prelude) and gave me the header, down pipe and muffler.

Not sure if it'll fit but it looks like it will haha.

I'm curious though, what determines the performance increases from a header? Some told me it's primarily the size of the pipe but I don't think that's the entire story.

Any input?

Re: New header, down pipe and muffler.

The size of the pipe (bigger is not necessarily better), air flow, and it's ability to scavenge are probably the most important factors. Scavenging is basically the same thing as syphoning and is a big factor in keeping exhaust gasses flowing out of the motor.

Bro first make sure you get it right was it a Integra or prelude, cause there are two different kind of cars by far. Unless the integra had an h22 the header is not going to work and as far as the exhaust pipping modification is going to be required.

Yeah I figured as much if it was an Integra, I'll double check later this week.

Re: New header, down pipe and muffler.

It also depends if it was an h22 or h23. Or f series for that matter

Re: New header, down pipe and muffler.

Then if it was an Integra it wount work put it on craiglist ans sell it. Then go back to craiglist amd buy it for the prelude you have with the motor you have then you will have no problems

Re: New header, down pipe and muffler.

buy a performance header.... otherwise keep what you have for the time being and save up for a performance header.... unless your header is literally rotting like mine was, then go with megan racing for the time being. it does nothing performancewise, but will be a cheap stock replacement until you can afford a performance header.
