    Headers + Hi Flow vs. dp + test pipe

    Assuming your heads are ported and you got cams, will it be worth going from a 3sx cali spec downpipe and test pipe to headers and a high flow cat?

    The more you open up the heads and headers, the more you gain up top and lose down low. It would depend on what you want to do, drag, road coarse or street. I am not sure it would be worth the trouble unless you are going big turbos, big power.

    Edit: Seeing that you are sohc and na, it would definitely not be worth the trouble in my opinion.

    eeek, SOHC? If I were na there wouldn't be a question about it, so long as you dont have smog INSPECTION problems. The headers are an immediate fail if people see them out here . Buuuuut, regardless, I would still go long tube headers and a high flow

    I personally wouldn't do it, but that's your call in the end.

    I'm with you on making good power out of an NA, everyone wants turbo this and turbo that. When my NA was up a VR4's ass in GMR and all he had to say was "damn I thought I had a VR4" I knew it was time to play. I'm not into drag racing like it seems most of our VR4 members are... I'm more into road courses and mountain roads. Anyone can mash a throttle wide open on a strait road... But can you do it through a corner?

    I say go big or go home... Get the headers and high flow if you don't care about smog, I have DN downpipe and can say bang for buck its worth it. I'm running a DOHC though, not sure about your SOHC.

    I may convert to AWD NA because as it is now 1st and 2nd gear like to spin on me.

    You have absolutely no concept if you think drag racing is just mashing a pedal and driving straight.

    Then again I see your wing and realize really how far gone your concept really is.

    My wing doesn't define my knowledge, drag racing down a 1/4 mile requires just as much tuning and preparation as a road course in many cases. But the build of a car drag racing is much different then that of a track car. Most competitive drag races are won at the tree. Reaction time is key. Knowing your shift points is also vital. I could go into more details but to give you a better idea of what I meant, drag racing isn't as hard as learning entry, apex, and exit in a corner while shifting and controlling throttle.

    And you will be behind the hondas if you do a NA awd conversion...

    Oh and I am sorry, if you were all up in that VR4's ass, he could not drive, and/or it had no boost. I have owned both, and there is no comparison in the corners or on the straights...

    You can't make up for 100+ hp and awd advantages no matter what dream you live in...
