You cannot change the headers on your engine because they are a part of the head's casting. Makes for a nice built-in turbo manifold though

hey since the swap is being discussed here & as you mention you would like to retain your auto-box,you have to keep in mind that the auto box has a toque converter and other things like that,which may fail under higher horsepower ratings than what it is designed for,your best available option on indian shores is to get in touch with karthik at race dynamics,hks india should be doing a kit for the r18a engine on indian soil,so this setup will give you complete guarantee that it will successfully work,no break downs or anything of the sort,i think boost will be limited via a preset wastegate at 6psi,because i believe that's what the stock civic internal's especially with an auto box can hold,again you will have to confirm this with karthik (Race Dynamics/Hks India) they most likely will offer you a complete turbo kit with injector upgrades etc if required and will be tuned by them aswel,should be your closest bet to an indian "reliable" solution to you r18a engine,hope this helps,cheers,happy revving..!

I just read the last part of the previous page and coudnt help smiling. That "box" thing is one of the funniest things I have seen on a Dashboard. There is no way it works the way you said it does narry. It just doesnt make any engineering sense. It just doesnt! If it were the case, all manufacturers will have this in their car and have a nice big red "BOOST" button on the steering wheel that would make is fell 10 years old when we press it.

Also, please check on an engine Dyno what a K&N really does....apart from the fact that it lets in more dirt than most other air Cleaner elements. This isnt just me saying it, there is a Spicer report on the same. Go look it up.
