From what I've read on various forums they are a knock off of pacesetter exhaust systems V6 long tubes. Which aren't made from 304 stainless steel.

if I was making a knock off I dont think I would make one from a 200 dollar header.. some people say bbk, ARH, and now pacesetter. The point is, they are stainless steel, cheap and proven on dyno to gain about the same as other headers. V8 guys already dyno'ed and jannety racing agreed that its putting out same gain as what they are seeing from long tube's

it was not directed to you I dont really care if something's a knock off as long as the material is the same and the gain is plenty and in this case I think obx is not bad at all considering that is all SS and dyno proven, and cant complain of the price.

wow that sounds amazing, and theres no RASP!
I cant believe how good that sounds, I thought the LTs would have made it really raspy, but it sounds great!
I wonder how those would sound with my SOLOs!

Awesome

Pretty much like my car sounds. Did you end up replacing the stock pipes to hook up the LTs to the MRTs? Seems like you kept the stock pipes because the system sounds a little lower than mine.

Great work!

I decided to hit the plunge and EZR gave me a great deal on one. I am planning to dyno mine when installed so I will let you guys know within 2-3 weeks when it go in. I had my mind set on bbk but I could not refuse after really looking at the quality, price, and already being dyno proven for v8's. I can use the extra couple hundred that I saved on something else for my big girl.

I still have the stock H pipes from the header back to the axle backs. I may put in an X pipe eventually

I do have a CEL, but I just ignore it for now since I'm not willing to screw my warranty with a tune

LOL, I did, but that was in an industrial park where the companys are all closed, so there was no traffic or threat of...better than being on the regular road

Yea I had the x-pipe installed as well when I had mine done and replaced the stock pipes with SS stock pipes for the larger diameter. The effect is interesting on my car, first mile after a cold start the car is raspy, then it gives this ridiculous rumble that is just so much fun And when I lay it down on the highway or city streets, I get close to breaking glass loud, lol.

Since you are going to be at Heroes in 2 weeks, how about parking next to each other and cold starting our cars one at a time Saturday morning? LOL

If your time and budget allows it, try and get a before dyno as well!

Thats what I am planning on doing I just have to find a dyno shop close to my house. I plan to dyno in this order, stock, obx long tube, obx long tube and vararam(when it come out). I dont plan on changing my stock mufflers as I can't stand loud systems, I think the long tube and intake should give me a nice change in tone on stock mufflers anyway

Awsome...I like your plan

I think it will sound good also, but just in case your curious I think you can get a nice low tone with LTs without being overly loud....for instance using magnaflows or Borlas as those are fairly tame exhausts.

Magnaflow with BBK: (guy has an SS now)

or Borlas with BBK:
