i know manny i know lol. I just installed them today! to be honest, i didn't feel much more gains but i do feel more pull in the midrange like 3500-5000. I bet i'll feel a lot more once i get a b-pipe. =]

Unfortunately, no. Sorry!


What i can tell you, is that it's one of the first things ppl notice when they look at the engine bay because of the ceramic coating.

DC vs WeaponR

thanks for the write up!

I am deciding between DC and Weapon R header. They seem to fit the same price range to compare.

They both have low-mid range gains
They both cost similar


For my personal preference:
Driving style : daily driver
Transmission: Automatic
Setup: Supa Sucka intake, stock exhaust

I would like to keep stock exhaust as I do not want a louder sound.

It would be great if there is any gains in MPG, I would be sold on that.


Any owner from either side want to suggest?

Thanks!

I've never used the weapon r header so I don't know the performance gains personally. As for the dc header, I was VERY impressed. Lots of torque gain. I'd go with that one

i'm surprised to find only 2 threads on this header, it seems to be a very good one!

Been searching for good prices for this header and seeing 260-300 +shipping.

wanted to know if this is CARB legal / exempt header?

I am reading that most of the DC headers are 50 state legal, but just wanted to make sure this one will have a sticker or something stating its carb legal.

anybody know?

Thanks!

EDIT: Update: I found out that it is still pending CARB exempt. so at the moment it's not CARB legal.

Really? The DC Sports headers aren't CARB exempt yet? Aww... I am seriously thinking about getting it. I wonder how it will sound? My setup is: Injen CAI and Tanabe Medalion Touring exhaust.

D.C has a good reputation and from what I've read here it makes the kind of power that makes for a more driver friendly car.... Sounds like a winner to me.

Me too but did anyone see a dyno graph of one in action..?? It seems like the A-Spec only picks up significant HP\TQ from something like 5k and up... The T1R seems to gain a lot from 3.5k and then fall to it's face at some thing like 6k... Can we combine both to have a product that will give significant HP from 3K 'till Fuel Cut? :P

My car is Automatic (Unfortunately!) so any gains in torque at the lowest revs are sure to gain my heart!!

Marko!!

i have both dc header and weapon R street header and i compared the piping size.. the weapon R has about 1.5" piping and the dc header is a little bit bigger than stock header piping, but the dc has better exhaust flow design than stock. I haven't tried dc header on my car yet bc i'm using the weapon R right now.. on my AT.. and so far i'm liking it. I think using the weapon R header with a muffler and all that would have way better results, but i'm not at that stage yet.. only one i'm willing to try is the discontinued t1r V.I.P lol
I think using the dc header with stock exhasut might yield some better torque.

At RPM what range does the Weapon R increase your car's performance?... Do you feel that it lengthens or shortens the power band?
