How bout some LG love, just bought mine and got them in yesterday. They are some nice headers! Installing them tomorrow, hope all goes well. With that said I saw a set of OBX today on a camaro and they looked fine and sound really good.

it doesn't matter wether you buy kooks, ARH, OBX, or the "super fake stainless" ebay headers. For those who bought OBX because you didnt want to spend almost $1000 on headers, i understand. And for those who have the high dollar stuff, thats awesome, it will probably last you a lot longer!! There's no need to bash each other though!! We all think differently, and have our own opinions!! At the end were all Camaro owners!! lol

im just trying to figure out how a brand of performance parts brings out the "ghetto" in a car owner like how the internet brings out all the ignorance in people i guess. bottom line is people buy what they want, its his car let him learn on his own. if the man is happy with HIS purchase who are you to piss on his parade? this thread is like an argument over someone who shouldn't eat from the dollar menu at mcdonalds because YOU eat hardees and the beef is better "quality"(angus)and more expensive... it serves the same purpose, your hungry you eat and are no longer hungry. sure the dollar menu will probably leave him with "the squirts" but if he likes it let HIM buy all the mcdoubles he wants... im just saying

its just a really bad argument though. there are certain things where it doesn't matter where its made. like most cars these days are made all over the world. we get it. but when it comes to certain items specially kooks knock off items. if everyone started buying kooks offs then the real ones would not exist that if that makes sense.

again we dont buy all american products, i buy mostly European made and asian made clothes. my DD is a brand new BMW, and you can count on this being my last american car..... just last week i bought a 500 dollar pair of gucci shoes... i buy Italian made shoes

but when i buy steel, i try to buy american.

its ok for you to buy OBX, but plz do not say i am wasting money spending more money than you. thats all

mikess read up not 1 time did i say anything about me saving money and u didnt , i was just sayin kooks guys dont need to say anything about obx guys either and steel is steel 304 is 304 right i cut metal with plasma cutter and torches almost every day. as far as obx stealing off u say kooks and arh or whatever how do u know it didnt happen other way around. just sayin who knows where they got their info to make them. all i know is im happy with mine and your happy with yours so who cares all i know is they perform well look good and sound awesome. but do go sayin were all about u.s. products when ur car come from canada and has probably 25% or more parts on it from china or whereever if not more.

I did the install in about 3 hours on jack stands in my garage and only had a few minor problems (which were not related to the headers). And I am only 19 with not much DIY experience. If anyone has any question an wants to know more about the headers or the install you can leave a comment or pm I would be super happy to give back something to the forum. Chears
Just want to get back on topic to congratulate the OP on his good deal before the mods shut this thread down like they always do when the haters take over. I got an excellent deal on my OBX headers also. Oh and one more thing, I have been a UAW member for 34 years and I bought OBX headers. If anybody doesn't like it they can ki$$ my a$$.

just like the case when u were in school and had ur 500 doller gucci shoes i had my good ol 50 doller kicks and got laid about 50 times more than u did lol.
nothing toward u just sayin that for a example god knows i didnt get laid until, wait i still havent and im 28. lol , damn that means those arent even my kids livin with wtf
get my point
yes i understand, again i only said something because the OP pretty much insulted me and other kooks and stainless works owners. it does really bother me, so i made a comment. when i said don't tell me i wasted money, it was said like for everyone to hear. not directed at you if that makes sense.

i feel you still mis understand my point though. its really not a american made VS import made debate. in fact i prefer European made goods over US good overall. german and Italian made is where its at if you ask me.

its a debate about knock offs, i hate fake gucci products wouldn't never buy one.
gucci is made in italy and knock off are made in china. nothing to do with US, but i still care.
also its a fact that chinese steal the designs off many companies. guns, clothes, headers, etc.

i live in MI, and i know people pretty high up in GM and chrysler. cant tell you how much they hate other counties at times. for things like these involving car parts.

anyways i think i am pretty much done with this thread, try to make my point and thats it.
