DC Sports RACE Header System

DC Sports Introduces its 4-2-1 Two-Piece Ceramic-Coated RACE ONLY Header for the 2001-03 Honda Civic EX & 4-2-1 One-Piece RACE ONLY Header for the 2002-04 Civic Si!

Sep 1, 2005

DC Sports proudly introduces its ceramic-coated 4-2-1 RACE headers for the 2001-'03 Honda Civic EX (part number HHR5019), and 2002-'04 Civic Si (HHR6515)!

Stated DC Sports Engineer Darrick Contreras, "We realized great gains with our Race Header for both applications. The catalytic converter on the Civic EX really restricted the car's ability to expel gases--it really choked the motor. Since our Race Header eliminates the factory cat, it becomes a non-issue. We expected great results on the Si since it is similar to the RSX Race Header design, and we were not disappointed with the results. Of course, we tuned it specific to the engine offered in the Si. Road racers and spirited drivers will not be disappointed with the performance of these systems!"

DC Sports RACE header systems are dyno tested to outperform all comparable header systems on the market, and are tuned for all out performance for racing applications. Extensive research and development goes into each system to ensure the best fit, finish and performance for your vehicle. All DC Sports header systems are precision bent on our CNC mandrel benders using data acquired from our non-contact digitizing scanner.

Our state-of-the-art manufacturing process ensures superior quality and a perfect fit with every header system we make. DC Sports RACE header systems are legal on off-highway vehicles only, and should never be used on public highways.
