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 and my auto anything experience were amazing!! We previously bought a header from Amazon but it didn't fit my husbands car (even bough it said it did). The header looks and sounds great! The AA salesperson made sure to sell us a product that fit our car. He answered all of our questions and even returned our call when we had more. We will definitely be purchasing all of our car products from AA from now on!!

welds inside that joints the four pipes together by the collector are not very High quality, I guess they are good but I was expecting more from 300$ DC SPORTS headers. they supposed to be stainless steel but somehow I could see some rust appearance inside of them as well, plus mine came with a small dent in the collector nothing big but noticeable, I'd like to believe overall performance, looks, and durability will be ok. I got them for my daily driver b-series ek coupe.

These headers are really a great deal. First of all, they have a very good build quality. They have a great sound for the boxer rumble. Putting them in wasn't bad either. One negative thing on these is they don't come with gaskets. Even after I called the website and asked if they came with them, the guy said they did. I received a box with no gaskets. Kinda disappointed there but the oem were still ok
