Default Header swap, need ideas

Hey yall.

1995 civic ex d16z6 5mt

i have a headerback exhaust system, all no name parts, i believe it to be 3 inch pipes from the header back. i was thinking its time to get rid of the rusty cast iron OEM header in favor of a new header. I need to know, i had a 4-2-1 header on my old integra and i loved the "rolling" exhaust note similar to a subie, but is it a 4-2-1 header that gives an engine that noise? I know its not a true subie unequal length header noise, but the 4-2-1 header on my b18 had a distinct noise to it.

I want to know. 4-1 or 4-2-1, which creates a more pleasing noise?
As far as the install goes, its unbolt the exhaust head bolts, undo the flange on the other side, and disconnect the o2 sensor, correct? And just reverse the process? Or would a 4-2-1 not directly swap in?

Thanks.

I was thinking to just swap a whole apexi N1 kit over? I got some tax money in, so if anyone wants to pitch good sounding exhausts my way I'm all ears.

APex'i N1 will do that. Had one on one of my old D-series Hondas. No aftermarket header, either. It's their muffler baffling, and resonator.
