Like the topic says. I've found some, but they want me to do mods for some reason just to mount them, which I think is kind of odd (diffrence between US and German model mabye?) or they are just WAY to expensive for what they are.

Does any one know a good company that sales for a FAIR price?

Headers are not worth the money for the amount of gain especially if you don't have major work done to your motor.

The mod's for the headers go from having to make a little room for clearance, to having to grind on the block! The clearance is fine, I've done it on many a small black, but the grinding just stumps me.

And as I said, for the what you're getting out of it, the price for most is much to much. I know BMW's arent like Hondas where if you bolt on headers and a cat back you're looking at a possible 30hp bump for only around a grand for both. But I thought if I could find a good low price set that would give me around a 10 jump, it be worht it.

Nearly or over 2k for only around 10hp is just not enough gain, since most intakes do around the same for fare less, I just dont think its going to work for me. I think I'll just save for awhile longer and just get a turbo I think, I'm only looking for around 300bhp, and most kits will give me around that

2k, where did you see that????

look at turnermotorsports.com they sell great stuff, prices arent bad, but i live across the country so overnight shipping is not so great. shorty headers went on sale for 999.99 and they are , i believe, a direct bolt on. plus they sell a few others as well.

give them a call, their tech guys really know their stuff and help out ALOT.

not even close on the Honda statement- IF you want to get that type of hp out of an exhaust- you're going to have to spend over 2k for some serious racing parts... those Honda 4cyls, aren't all they're cracked up to be- unless you open them.
just didn't want the BMW crowd to have mis-conceptions...

Yeah, everyone and their mother in the rice world will claim SOOO much more for their parts than they really are. Most of the claims are for Flywheel horsepower anyway, which doesn't translate into much rear-wheel horsepower. An AEM CAI on a Honda/Acura will only provide no more than 8-10 hp at ABSOLUTE most. Real gains will be around 4-5hp for just an intake, about 7-8hp for the exhaust, and about 10-12 for headers...however headers on those cars are the biggest HP per dollar increase though. This stuff is where the jokes of adding stickers to your Honda will give you 30-40hp increase, hahaha...
