Cool let us know how it goes. Any other Acura tech info would be good to. Do you know anything about the company hosting the gathering? Do they already produce performance parts and how are they usually priced? It seems to me that Comptech charges more for their headers than just about any other company that makes headers. IMO. Anyway have a good time!

Oh I'm not going, just recieved the update in my email. Comptech charges alot for two reasons. They are usually the only company designing and producing parts so they have a monopoly. In the headers case, well they are headers. There are not that many v6 headers out on the market for any car.

I understand that Comptech is the only game in town but GD! Compare the cost of Comptech to practically any US v8 header manufactorer [email protected] I know they've got to recoup their engineering dollars but don't they know this country and theirs is having a little economic difficulty. I am now getting off the soap box, I just want some headers but refuse to pay that much.
