For well more than a decade now, DC Sports has been the name synonymous with sport compact race performance. This reputation of speed and power began with their expertly-crafted headers, which DC Sports dyno-tests to ensure a performance gain unmatched on the market.
Great care is taken in crafting a DC header. All pipes are mandrel-bent to an exact shape for virtually unrestricted flow. Their 3/8" CNC machined flanges and O-rings ensure a factory-like fit that won't leak. And, the robotic MIG welding assures the durability of DC headers.
For the performance that best meets your driving needs, DC Sports Headers come in 4 header styles: 4-2-1 two-piece models for easier mounting, lighter 4-2-1 one-piece models, 3 into 1 models for V6 engines, and 4 into 1 race-inspired models boasting extreme top-end power.
Each DC Header is available in polished or brushed stainless or ceramic-coated mild steel finishes. And, your DC Sports Headers carry a 1-year warranty.
- Vehicles operating with a nitrous oxide system run significantly hotter than non-nitrous cars, requiring a stainless steel header system instead of a ceramic mild steel finish.
Thanks to the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act: US Code – Title 15, Chapter 50, Sections 2301-2312, your vehicle’s factory warranty is protected by law when you add aftermarket parts. Details

This header is awesome and a perfect fit. DC Sports figured this out. Don't waste you time or money on a cheap version, just buy this header. You can immediately feel the difference in power.

The headers were very difficult to install. I have large hands and the spaces around the engine compartment are very small. Once installed the power increase is extremely noticeable over the stock manifolds and cats. Above 4,000 rpm sounds like a diving wasp. I guess it's rear exhaust time

This header is significantly lighter than the cast OE piece possibly in the realm of 10 pounds lighter. Collector opening outer diameter is 2-inches and the inner diameter is approximately 1.8-inches. Some flaws are evident: slightly off center bracket near collector, header collector flange holes a bit off center and some 'rough' areas that may cause air turbulence. The cermaic coating is not the best quality as some 'copper-colored' areas show. On to the performance end, (no dyno test numbers to provide) the header did feel as though the engine was not choking in certain parts of the RPM range. Driving impressions: minimal engine choking, able to hold gears longer and not feel as though the engine is racing or bucking.

The headers themselves are an easy swap getting to them is a whole other issue. If you have more heat shields then the one directly attahed to the manifold take them to a shop. Paid $150 to let them play around, the headers were slightly larger and of course smoother bends performance is slightly noticeable without being programmed. A great addition to DC exhaust for power I went with Magnaflow and the system is very CLASSY. Let your engine breath cold air intakes and exhaust pay for themselves.
