Hey, 6th gens! Im new to this forum and all of them as this is my first forum post ever. My name's Michael and I drive a 99 Accord Sedan EX 2.3l auto trans! Cosmetic is not really my main concern, my paint is fading crazy and I have dings and knicks everywhere lmao. Anyways I'm looking for recommendations here in 2023 for exhaust headers. I'm currently rocking a full bolt-on exhaust from an ECCPP header, a gutted cat, and a fancy dancy Yonaka Catback. My point is the ECCPP header sounds like s**t and isn't exactly welding all that great so I'm looking for a better one. Yeah, I know an $80 USD header wasn't the smartest choice but that's all I could find, smh. Also, I'm not exactly mechanically inclined so does anyone know if the 4-speed auto is upgradable without a swap? I'm trying to stay stock until the motor blows or something and I can do a head swap and a camshaft upgrade. The transmission was replaced because it went out however the new transmission only has around 90k miles but the motor is factory and between me and the other 2 owners it's at 270k ish miles. I'd appreciate any input and if this ain't the right place to post this thread please point me in the right direction! Thank you for reading!

I know you can run a transmission oil cooler, I’m about to do the same. Can help with longevity of the transmission.

Those Flashark headers worked out great. finally got them installed. I however had bought the second half from DNA. and was super unhappy with them. But the headers and Jpipe. Looked great. Stainless steel so it wont rust. and there welds looked really good. I took a dremel and spend some time on the inside of them though. because there cuts were a little long and jagged inside. probly didnt make a difference. but id rather do somethign right once then have to do it again. ill post pics tomorrow

Awesome, thanks for the update, guess I’ll go ahead and get mine ordered or I will just go ahead and drop the 400 for some DCs

Here’s some shit photos. But yeah that dna cat back was not the best choice. Super cheap. Sounds like shit. I need to find a resonator or silencer. Something. I mean some 16 year old kid would love it. I however. Don’t need all that attention. Also get yourself a test pipe for your cat replacement. If that’s the route you wanna go. I just re used mine because I didn’t order one. Totally spaced it. Tomorrow I’ll try to get pics of the DNA catback issues
