buy stuff for a d16z6 and it will work fine until and if you break into the bottom end.

Usually header just refers to naturally aspirated exhaust manifolds. For turbo applications the term is "turbo manifold."

the word 'header' isnt restricted to NA motors only. turbo header is the same thing as a turbo manifold.

Hence why I said "usually." If you search on ebay right now for "civic turbo header" you'll recieve 15 results, while if you search "civic turbo manifold" you'll recieve 261 results including all 15 from the "header" search.
