    I think most people get an 02 simulator to sort out the eml
    CW DC5 w/ ARC Super Induction Box, Mugen Twin Loop, Takata Racing harnesses, more to come!

    Just fitted a dc sports yesterday and used the sparkplug non fouler trick for the secondary O2 sensor. No CEL so far, after 150Miles of driving.
    Just in case, I do have an OBD2 scantool to delete CEL's when they should pop up.

    I'll let you know if I have a CEL...


    And for your information, the car really DOES benefit from a header even without mapping, and no not imaginary

    and go for L shape, I had to cut the heat shield to make it fit

    Thanks for the reply guys but i really need one for Thursday as that's when I'm fitting the manifold
    I can't find any anti foulers most seem to be
    In USA looks like I'll have to buy a simulator

    found one on ebay UK a while ago, can't remember though what store (sorry )
    You still could order one from the US, run few days with cel light on and fit it later, really, you'd need L-shape or cut the heatshield to make straight-shape fit (like I did)

    So I assume the dc sports header has been placed?
    Feel any difference in power? Mine does, combined with Fujitsubo RM01A and screams like a race engine in VTEC!!
    I guess anything near 5BHP increase. Can't really say...

    Car vibrates alot more because the energy engine mount inserts, but shifting goes ALOT smoother, I was surprised how much difference they make.
    Also, wheelhop on wet road is almost eliminated completely!!

    I'd suggest the energy inserts even for stock EP3's... unless the vibes make you go insane
