Ebay Headers

I have an question.
What do you guys think about the cheap ebay headers that are between 25 and 75 dollar?
Is it worth it or does it give the same performance you get out of an OEM head?

yeah, save up your money until you can buy some quality headers, like Edelbrock, Megan Racing, or whatever your favorite brand is. (I personally like GReddy)

Or save your money up for :

SMSP:

RMF:
www.myspace.com/rmf_headers
contact 98vtec. Blake.

these are performance products.

Ebay brands, well...it's up to you, they dont produce significant amount of power. Mainly for looks, which is all good too.
Do a search.

If you just need a header, get a Honda OEM one. Otherwise, RMF and SMSP are the way to go.

This goes back to what I posted on the N/A thread, no you won't get power out of them but you can shead a few pounds off the nose of your lude...

everyone knows that unfortunately the h22 is one of the heaviest 4 cyl honda motors, well then have you ever taken off your stock header and/or muffler and felt how heavy they are???

All though the bottom basement headers won't yeild too much hp or torque they will drop some weight off the nose of your car and it does add up...

so there is a benefit to cheapo headers
my 2 cents...
