My GF's 96 EX (all stock, don't worry) has a crack in the exhaust manifold. What a perfect excuse to install a header. :idea:

Questions: 1) any tips on the install? looks simple enough.

2) Ebay headers? anyone have expereince (or friends) with the cheap 4-2-1 header? They're only ~$55 shipped. Do they fit okay? I'm not worried about getting the most performance, just something that is cheap and fits well and passes smog. Car will remain stock besides this.

just get a stock EX header from the junkyard...it flows better than most aftermarket headers...the ebay stuff i have no experience with...but unless you want to lay down some serious cash, then stick with the stock [shizzle] (your not going for performance anyway, so dont blow 300+ dollars on something that you dont need)

installation is cake...unbolt from cat, unbolt from engine, pull it from the top (dont forget that o2 sensor ;) ) if youve never installed a header on that motor, then it might be a little bit of a bastard at first, just play with it :)
