DC Sports

When DC Sports was founded by Darrell and Darrick Contreras, they had one mission: to create high-quality performance products for the emerging Sport Compact Market.

Back in 1987, American Honda approached them with a challenge – develop a header for their SCCA-prepped CRXs. What came out of that project was the game-changing 4-into-1 header design. This wasn't just any product; it was so impressive that Honda wanted more for other applications. That system, known as HHC5002, marked the beginning of a legacy.

The Sport Compact Market primarily consisted of Japanese small cars, already known for their reliability and performance. These vehicles became the perfect canvas for tuning modifications.

Throughout the '90s, DC Sports became synonymous with Honda and Acura performance. By the early 2000s, they began expanding into other sport compact platforms. Their unique designs didn’t just perform; they outperformed the competition, making DC Sports the go-to brand for serious enthusiasts.

Today, DC Sports offers products for most popular sport compact vehicles. Their headers and intakes come in both CARB-approved (50-state legal) and race-only (off-road use) versions. Headers are crafted from polished T304SS stainless steel and/or T409SS ceramic-coated for ultimate protection and finish. Intake kits feature high-flow open-element filters and all the necessary hardware for a hassle-free installation. Braces, made from mild steel for strength, are powder-coated for durability, and whenever possible, they use solid one-piece designs to maximize chassis rigidity. Every part is engineered and dyno-tested for performance (where applicable) and comes with a one-year warranty. DC Sports is all about performance and value, but there's also something unmistakable about their products – the look, feel, and quality that set them apart from the rest.


DC Sports is the go-to for exhaust systems in the sport compact scene. They've got a lineup that includes everything from Honda and Accord to BRZ, 240SX, G35, and more. Their offerings don't stop at just exhausts – they also produce front pipes, midpipes, y-pipes, universal mufflers and tips, and replacement exhaust clamps and gaskets. When it comes to performance and quality, DC Sports delivers every time.


They provide cold air intake systems, short ram intake systems, silicone couplers, and a full range of replacement air filters. The majority of these products come with CARB certifications, making them a top choice for performance enthusiasts who need to stay compliant.


DC Sports delivers a selection of front upper strut tower bars, along with rear upper strut tower bars for a wide array of sport compact cars. They're catering to the needs of performance enthusiasts who demand top-tier handling and stability.


Through their sister brand Hybrid Racing, DC Sports' engineers are merging their expertise in top-tier shifters and drivetrain products to expand their reach beyond the Honda and Acura market.
