Spring has finally come and ive been itching to put all my new stuff on. so yesterday i broke down and did everything. I also went back to the oem header and oh man! best thing i have ever done! it makes a world of difference! Last night i went and took a quick photo shoot so here are my unedited pictures taken with a Nikon D80 and D5000 or maybe a 7000 i can't remember.. Let me know what you think.

Very nice! Also, what difference did you notice between the oem header and the one you had on (just curious)?

Well first off the torque. With the aftermarket there was a lot more bottom end! But I feel like there's maybe a little more top end with the oem. Also the sound. I had a slight amount of rasp with my full exhaust. But with the oem header it is now rasp free and Is a lot quieter. It also has a lot deeper of a tone and sounds meaner! Almost like a wrx

nice ride man! my original color of choice was white...but they didn't have it in stock so i settled for the Blue ribbon. But about your header, would you recommend an aftermarket header or just stay stock? because im interested in getting a header but i dont want it to be so damn annoying and raspy.

I would recommend staying stock! There really isn't much of a noticeable gain! Plus it sounds so much nicer with the stock header, no rasp at all. Although the aftermarket header looks sexy under the hood. Personally the look doesn't outweigh the civic rasp!
