Default Header cracked

Hey guys, im new to cars in general but i really want to get into them. Any ways, i got a problem. I just bought a used Honda civic and the header is cracked and it needs to be replaced. I'd really like to get somthing top of the line sence my engine has no Vtec or dohc. and its only 106 HP, so i'd like to wrap my crapy engine with high perfoormance parts, to make up for the engines performance.

My quesiton Is: What is the best header i can get for about $200?

vtec does not actually mean it is a performance engine.

then you havnt heard or seen a true honda powerplant built for high speed and high hp in the world of drag racing............just about all of them with dohc vtec powerplants have the vtec assembly locked. in other words they dont use vtec but rather lock it and use large cams but have the higher flow rate of the dohc vtec heads. vtec is good for gas milage and drivability thats it. in the world of racing the added components make the engine that much less reliable.

edit failed to mention that there are vtec killer cams.....they do away with the vtec lobe allowing you to remove the vtec follower.
