Decent Headers ?

Are these headers 1/2 decent off ebay ? I have a b18c1 and they say it will fit. The motor is in a 93 civic h/b. Any feedback would be great heres the headers Im looking at

simple answer.....any header priced less than $450 is probably a generic $15 overseas header. the $450 units, are the $100 overseas header with a good design. poorly designed headers are cheap, and a well tuned unit (which, always make more power everywhere) is a bit more pricey. so my question is, do u want to make good power, or do u just want a header?

Im just wanting something that will sound a little nicer and looks newer than stock. I dont expect to gain mad hp. Just cause Im going with 2.5" all the way back. So 4-into-1 or 4-2-1 I dunno I have no clue lol I do plan on building up the motor in time this winter

half decent would be a JDM header from ... probably option I wouldn't let them rape you on the price though and at least you can sell it later if you choose to upgrade

from the sound of it, you should do more research on different setups before you build your engine because I/H/E are the basics

2.5" is good for n/a.. rage headers are good if you want to spend the money

I'll go n/a for the mean time then maybe boost after Ive put some money into the motor and read up more on turbos. I would spend the money on some nice ones but if I go turbo later on I will hardly get my money back for headers.
