tip for u... for my 4-1 header, my downpipe hung 3" off the ground... raised up the car 1" and welded on 1/4" thick flat iron (on each dp), about 10" long x 1.5" wide. guy called it a skid plate. looked it up on the net and aparantly they make em for honda 4-1 bseries headers. see pic

so mine still rubs on certain roads but no more dents.... jus hope no major hit dont break the welds or something worse

^I would be interested in getting a skid plate. I've also thought about coming up with something for my oil pan as well. I took the splash guards off just on the bottom side.

Doesn't seem to much lower than the other 1. Most of the sr20's in NYC are daily driven...that would be a nightmare.
