VTEC kicked in yo

Happened 2 miles after I picked it up from getting a new crank sensor put on. Hit vtec for the second time that drive and boom. Pulled over and saw this:

Loudest drive home ever haha I was a little worried about getting pulled over. Gonna fit the header back together and torque some bolts into where the retention springs go tomorrow

Hahahaha yes! It sounds comparable to my buddy's straight pipe exige. I actually got pulled over on the way to work today, but the cop was cool and I just showed him what happened. And yes, it's a replica, but don't let this deter you from buying one. It just needs retaining springs or a nut and bolt and I'm good to go.

Re: VTEC kicked in yo

I'm missing a bolt on mine actually between the 1st and 2nd piece of the header. I need to fix that. :/

Re: VTEC kicked in yo

I HATE hytech replicas. They're such junk. I threw mine away. After a couple rounds of it blowing apart or separating because you had to choose between a dead raccoon or the front of another car, you'll learn to either have it welded up, or get a different header. Without a traction bar system to give yourself more clearance, you'll likely go with another header lol.

Mine separated at the collector about six times. The first couple happened when the exhaust scraped going up a driveway, the others happened because of debris/carcases in the road.

Re: VTEC kicked in yo

Haha I hear where you're coming from. If it happens again, I'll prolly go with another header or throw the stock one back on for the time being. Took it to the exhaust shop by where I work ad they took it all apart and put it back together and double bolted everything for $30
