How 'bout these headers?

Please check this.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=33631&item=2429997514

I know some of you will start b*tching about ebay, but it's about the only way to get stuff to europe. Plus, I never got f*cked over once.

Anyway, are these headers good?
Should I buy 4-1 headers?

Which brand is the best to buy?

No you shouldn't buy them and reason why you shouldn't is because you dont know the quality or research that went into the design of the headers. In order to see hp gains, certain bends must be made and port size must be adjusted.

I was talking to an engineer who just happened to be making a pair of headers for the RSX Type S. He hand made 200 different pairs of headers to test fit and dyno to see which one yields the most hp. All 200 hand made headers which were very similar but the bends in the headers were very miniscule.

Go with quality over price... These headers do not even have a brand associated with them and are therefore unreliable. Spend a little more to get a little more and you will be happy that you did.

Okay,

they seem a little cheap for decent headers indeed,
how are the hotshots headers?

Is 4-1 better than 4-2-1 or vice versa?
Or doesn't that matter at all?

4-2-1 and 4-1 usually does not make a noticeable difference...it's mainly just how it was crafted or to provide for an easier fit. (headers are famous for causing headaches)

speed4theneed...i noticed you always have multiple posts right after each other...there is no reason for that...
just edit your original first reply if you want to say something right after you posted the reply.


Trial and DC do not make headers for the GT...
the only GT headers are made by Hotshot and are very nice so I think you should invest in them instead of something on ebay.

ok somthing ya missed. if that is a pic of the actual header, it will not fit the celi. that header is for a vehicle that has the exhaust ports on the front side of the engine. the celi has the Intake on the front and exhaust on the rear. and look at the top of the listing, what is a HONDA TOYOTA CELICA GT, does honda own toyota now ?
