Yeah...the DX is built to be economic and efficient.....this is a limiting factor for you as far as performance parts go......It would be impractical to redo the entire emissions system......

I say ditch the dx mani before it cracks and get a decent header on. Then get a magnaflow cat ($90) and have a custom (slightly larger) catback made and installed at a muffler shop for like a couple hundred bucks, or you could just cut your stock exhaust off where the cat would meet it and have a flange welded on. (if it lines up [i never owned an ek])

And I doubt you ever will since ek's were only built and sold in Japan.


With the DX you have to replace the manifold and catalytic converter. To do it the legal way you will need to have a replacement catalytic converter installed in the normal location: under the car
