ERZ, What is the expected gain with the OBX? Is there a compareable gain vs BBK or ARH?

I think the OBX are replica of BBK headers because they very similar.

They are 400 shipped

bmorecam 03-01-2011 07:19 PM

with high flow cats?

KMPrenger 03-01-2011 07:24 PM

Of course I can't say forsure, but by just comparing side by side pictures, the BBKs don't really look like the OBX. The flange area where the cats are connected is different.

ERZperformance 03-01-2011 07:28 PM

Those are test pipe only.

They are a knock off of pace setter exhaust parts. Except made in staneless.

Im not surprised at all that there's a company making knock offs.

I had an OBX turbo stainless manifold on my old car. Never had a problem at all with it. I was running 12lbs of boost through it too. Knock off or not their products are good.

TJ91 03-02-2011 04:05 AM

Anyone know the gains you get with the OBX?

OOLIE 03-02-2011 08:36 PM

Yeah I would be very interested to see a dyno on those.

cntryman77 03-08-2011 12:21 PM

high quality video & pics coming this evening...finally have some nice weather to do it

OOLIE 03-08-2011 01:45 PM

:w00t: look forward to it. Still love to see a dyno if anyone has found it just for reference as well.

Can't wait to see them also. I think OBX is a very good cheapest alternative way for header. Its 1 3/4 in size too but I wonder if that would kill low tq. alot of v8 guys have them and they are getting gains as same as the expensive ones so I think it would be the same for v6.

ERZperformance 03-08-2011 06:46 PM

Can't wait to see it.

Dyk-NO 03-08-2011 07:15 PM

don't care if it's a knock off LOL like does it matter? if it's the right material and specs for the job then it's all good.

Op btw are these LTs?

ERZperformance 03-08-2011 07:57 PM

I just check the OBX header is made with full t-304 stainless steel even the flange is completely stainless.

Yes, they are actually a higher quality part than what they copy. A high quality knock off.

KMPrenger 03-08-2011 08:01 PM

What are they a knock off of exactly? These are 1 3/4 right? The BBKs are 1 5/8.

EDIT: Sorry, saw the above post about them being pace setter knock offs.
