K-Tuned RSX Header

K-Tuned RSX Header

2 Materials are available:
MSRP: $649.99 (304 Stainless)
MSRP: $489.99 (409 Steel)
Add Catalytic Converter: This can be added to either header for an additional $150.

Applications: Direct bolt-on for all 02-06 RSX Type-S models but will also fit RSX premium/base models that are using or switching to a Type-S exhaust system.

Features:
- Fits RSX with K20 engine ONLY
- 4-2-1 Tri-Y Design
- 304 Stainless Steel
- CNC cut 3/8" thick SS Flanges
- 2.5" Outlet
- Cat can be added

The goal with any performance header design, is to get exhaust gases to flow out of the engine faster and more efficiently, which in turn will produce more power and performance. The K-Tuned RSX Header was designed with this exact theory in mind and utilizes a proven 4-2-1 Tri-Y design with extremely smooth slip fit merge transitions to increase the exhaust flow and power output of the Honda K engine. Like most Tri-Y designs, power gains are seen almost everywhere in the power band, not just the top end. Fitment is equally if not more important to us than function and although the subframe and swaybar on the RSX presented some design challenges, the final fitment was definitely worth some extra time. The secondary tubing passes perfectly through this tight area with extra clearance for engine movement.

The header features stepped piping beginning with 44mm primaries that progressively move into 48mm, then 50mm secondaries and finally a 64mm or 2.5” exit. Like all our headers, it is assembled with mandrel bent, 304 stainless steel tubing and is fully tig welded. We also use slightly thicker gauge tubing that allows for better weld penetration and additional strength. The CNC cut 3/8" thick flanges are also double welded and then ported for optimum flow at entry and exit. This header directly replaces the OEM 2 piece design and eliminates the catalytic converter so we included a short 2.5" test-pipe with defouler for the secondary O2 sensor. Please note that our cat option is now available for $150 extra. Be sure to check out our 3" Oval Tube Exhaust System for the RSX if you haven't seen it already.

On your website, it shows that there are two headers for the RSX.
Whats the defense?

The difference is the material used to make it.
You can choose between 409 Steel or 304 Stainless Steel.
The 409 Steel is cheaper.

Quality and fitment of both headers is exactly the same.
The choice really depends on whether you want stainless steel or not?
409 Steel will rust on the surface.

Also these tend to leak at the slip joints just to let you guys know. ive baby'd my rsx with this header and after two months I got a leak so might want to go with something with more quality like spoon, mugen, or asp.

I got mine welded shut for 150. No issues and they make more power than the spoon, and cost 1/4 less than ASP
