i bought a 97 civic lx 4dr has a b16a swap has a cheap lookin 4 into 1 header its pretty close to the oil pan any thoughts what else would work ? ....i had a new cat installed and im pretty sure its a megan racing cat back im guessing the fart can was cut off and replaced with a M-OE Muffler.... the dam thing drones soo much and dont even sound good looking to just replace the muffler is my guess ? ... also i got a pretty much new megan racing 4-2-1 header on my 90 integra with a b18b could i use that instead ?

From what I've learned here at CC, generally you can use almost any B-series headers on any B-series motor. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Also, what kind of sound are you trying to achieve? Deep, low and powerful, or rice burner snap crackle pop?

usually you cant use a b16 specific header on a B18 because of the taller deck height, they hit the oil pan. But in the case of using a B18 header on a B16 then all should be okay

OP what size is your piping, are you running a cat and resonator?

if you cut off your muffler you probably took away some power/torque too since N/A motors need that back pressure..but as long as you like it :thumbup:

Can't believe people haven't caught this yet. He mentions the other header is from a B18B and not a B18C. It won't fit onto your B16A. The V-TEC head is different. It is was the GS-R then you could.
