Default EP3 Mods Question??

I got an ep3 and i did add some mods to gain a little power !!!
AEM v2 intake
Skunk2 exhaust

Now my question is.... i brought the 4-2-1 dc sports header will it make a big difference???
Where will the sound will come more from ...?? the motor or exhaust will be more heard??
I wanted to install it but only HONDA dealership install it for 300$ is it worth it ??

you should do it yourself, its not that hard. 300 sounds kinda high just to remove some bolts. i say try yourself first. let me know how it comes Click the image to open in full size.

You wont feel much with a that header, you need a real rh to feel the gains. Sell what you have and get an obx rh. I know, it's obx but, they seem to be doing very well.

I'd get a RH. Even a $20 jack is tall enough to remove the EM/DP. Spray the endlinks and cat bolts a day in advance. Rent an O2 sensor socket too.

You did not tell us that, you just said that you had a header.
