Sway Bar Clearance

I have a plm/kidd racing crsx header, and im getting ready to drop my k20/24 frank back into my rsx. Ive read a few things here and there, but no definitive answers on whether or not this header will clear the stock sway bar. Any input?

Sounds like you need a custom header, but I could be wrong...

That was already covered. I asked about the plm header in specific to see how many hit or miss cases there was. Thanks

From the other threads I've seen on here, quality control on the alpha header wasn't great. It's supposed to clear the factory sway bar. Some people had to get the EM2 sway bar, other people had to get a progress sway bar, and others were getting sway bar relocation kits from Skunk2 (not sure how those work). Stiffer motor mounts were also another fix as the engine will flex under acceleration or when braking.

Like stated, sometimes you need a EM2 sway bar, sometimes you don't when using the alpha header

I have used the ktuned k20 and K24 header with 0 clearance issues.
