You are talking about a sports car - the Trans-am is designed to run - but the Legend (being a luxury/family car) has power - with some minor alterations my Legend (1991 L) goes from 0-60 in 5.6 seconds..
Weapon R intake ($89.00)
Cat-back exaust system double pipe ($130.00)
DC-Sports Headers ($375)
I bought my Legend recently (2002) it has 94,566 miles - bought it for $5,400 and invested just about $600 in alterations to the engine and body - it has leather seats. This car is the best car I have ever had - Street racing has become very popular here in Phoenix AZ lately - and I can honestly tell you that all of those Euro-style and domestic "fixed up" vehicles do not intimidate me in my Acura Legend. I also own a Honda Accord LX - great car - but there is no comparison - only problems I have encountered are: cigarette lighter, driver's side power window - and power trunk release button - other than that... I am happy with my Legend.

There is no such thing of a "DC headers" for your Legend. Acura Legends don't have aftermarket headers. Get your act straight and stop lying.

DC-Sports headers for the Acura Legend?!!! Where did you find them? I know of a lot of people who would love to purchase headers for their Legend, but the part seemed to be a myth. Some are looking into custom fabrication of headers, but the cost for these will be high.
And at that, your's are from a reputable manufacturer! Please reveal where you purchased these!!! There are dozens of Legend owners that are dying to get there hands on this part!

So are the headers for the Legends or what? If so
I would really like to buy some? I have looked all over the net an can't find them any where.

There is no way you can buy headers for the legend. They just don't make them. I had my friend's dad make me custom headers for my 92 legend. He also made me a custom straight pipe and dual exhaust (there is no cat on it at all, it's not street legal, but I still drive it like it is). I have a K&N intake that I bought from e-bay (got a great deal on it only $84). Got a custom T4 turbo put in with inter cooler, 2 NOS bottles, valve timing, new cams and gears, and whole new computer. The last time I took it out on the track it went from 0-60 in 4.3 seconds and the quarter in 11.3 seconds at 129 mph. I burned my friends brand new BMW M5 with it. Find me a mustang, comaro, or firebird that will do that.

I want to know if I can get the custom headers that you girlfrieds dad made you, how much would he charge. I have never taken my car to the track, I have a Type II motor, automatic with just a the $84 intake, how fast do you think I can hit the quarter mile.

I am a custom fabricator and owner of a speed and custom shop in Northern Ca. I am considering fabricating stainless headers for a 91 Legend coupe I have in my shop. If anybody is interested in headers please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. These are going to be full length with 3/8 flanges so far. The tube diameter and tube length is still to be determined. Of course they will not be C.A.R.B. approved, but they will fit. Price will depend on how many orders I get. I will require half deposit before fabrication begins.

So about the headers I have looked every where and talked to everyone, it has to be custom. I would like to know how my man with the turbo nade all that work or are you just talking a good game.

A stock 2001 4.6L 5 speed Mustang does 0-60 in 5.4, and more importantly hits the 1/4 mile in only 14 seconds at 100, and a stock 93 Legend 6 speed does 0-60 7.5, 1/4 = 15.9 (Motor Trend June 1993).
How can a Legend, even highly modded, go 0-60 in 4.3 and 11.3. ("The last time I took it out on the track it went from 0-60 in 4.3 seconds") That can't be true, since my 414hp (at the wheels) supercharged '01 Mustang can hit at best a 12.3 or 12.2 1/4 mile, and 0-60 in about 4.6 with drag rad tyres. It takes about 25-30 hp to reduce your 1/4 mile by 0.1 second (Stangnet.com). Let's do the math: 15.9 - 11.3 = 4.6, 4.6 * 30hp = 136hp more at the wheels is needed. In a FWD car, the wheel spin would be too much. Just look at the new Comptech 390hp CL-S; it's is only a little faster than the normal CL-S.

You are comparing a Mustang (sports car) to a Legend (family sedan). That is the first problem first off. Second, check out the years. 2001 compared to a 1993? That's an 8 year difference. With all those years of difference, the Mustang only beat out the Legend by 2 seconds and you are bragging about that! I would think again. Oh, and by the way, when you get into a wreck with the Legend, you'll be more likely to survive. If you're looking for money savers, look at the insurance costs compared between the 2. There is no question that the Legend is on top in every field.

Your 92 Legend can't beat my 5.0 Mustang. You're saying it can beat any Mustang. Not some Japanese car with NOS and and only 295 hp or whatever.

Man, some of you guys are morons! The kid with the Legend headers, yeah, they don't exist unless you have them custom fabricated. Next, off the 3.2 accord motor, NO, it won't work. Legend's motor is places front to rear, accord is a transverse mount. Duh. The headers on a transverse mount car will have to drop and run under the side of the motor and meet the rear header collector. The legend motor would have headers the style of a camaro or such.
Next, a T4 turbo and NOS. Yeah right buddy/ NOS is "Nitrous Oxide Systems," made by Holley's performance division. So you can't run NOS. You can run nitrous oxide via a Holley NOS system. What's it jetted to? What EMS are you running? You probably have no idea what the hell I'm talking about, because you're full of S**t. Man, some of you guys are real morons. But thanks for the good laugh, I love when people think they know what the hell they're talking about and just list parts from "The Fast and the Furious." FLAME ON, losers...

Actually, he can be running "NOS" in an Acura Legend. They make a 50-70hp dry kit for it. But, he was probably lying about the t-4 turbo and custom headers. I own a 91 Legend with a type II conversion. I have found one company who can custom fabricate a turbo system for Legends. Here is the URL: http://forcedairtechnologies.com/
This system is for the first gen Legends. They claim a 70-80hp gain. They said making a similar system for the second gen Legends is possible, but costly. And about all this Legend vs Mustangs and Legend vs Firebird crap... I won't even get into it... LOL.
