    for the price of a full exhaust system with headers you could just do a B series swap and get more power for the same price

    if you want to modify the car the best thing you can do is do an engine swap.

    if you want the best hedders get bismoto, but then thats 1/2 of a B18CR swap next best his hytec and SMSP.

    then the style hedders which are about 700-800 a set.

    there are once your there you can get second hand but the brand really doesnt matter. they will iaa give about the same gain over stock ones if you decided to go that route.

    a b16a swap will give you about a 30hp increase, a set of headers about 5-7 untuned if your lucky. then you can modify the b16a which will respond to mods better than the ZC would

    +1 will be around the same price as a b18c swap and make more power.
    Just wont be as reliable but as long as your not pushing it too hard the only thing that should let go is the head gasket and thats not too hard to change.

    Re: Zc headers

    As above if you're shooting for big power turbo / engine swap.

    The zc isn't a total loss engine though, they respond nicely to light mods.. on par with toyota 4age series. If you get a nice exhaust system made now you will be able to keep it down the track if you do decide to change the motor, and also as ZC bits are quite hard to get, you will probably not lose any money selling any headers you buy.

    Headers are quite hard to find now, so you are limited to second hand japanese stuff, or new american stuff (big bucks) or new chinese stuff (Generally avoid, low quality, small gains)
    The internetz its serious business

    welllllll..... i am going turbo... and i could do with a 2.5" system so i might be willing to part with my jasma headers and full 2" system with one coby.... but id have to think about it.
