We have a winner!

I've got Obx on my car and love them. Spent countless hours reading thru all the arguements on this forum about them and it just came down to personal preference on why people dislike them. Mine look and fit great. I remember this issue when pacesetters hit the market for 4th gens, tons of dislikes until track and dyno numbers back them up against the competition. Not trying to change any minds just giving my own .02 about my experience with them.

I wont say whats best or worst rankings, but I know ARH 1 7/8" headers and Magnaflow 16483 (3" system) sounds wicked with no drone at all. I didnt have my exhaust done at adm but I listen to cavermans one time witht Kooks and the same catback and I was hooked. So buy ARH or Kooks, only issue seems to be with kooks is hitting the steering linkage but that is hit or miss.

Texas Speed has a bad reputation for SERVICE not so much quality. When you pay X amount for TSP or X amount for ____ and they are the same numbers and quality, I would ALWAYS pick the company that's going to be legitimately concerned with any issues that may arise.

So then you're saying nothing wrong with the product, just lacking in the customer service dept... For the same quality at half the price, I think it still might be worth it

If buying now, my preference would be for Kooks. But there are so many high quality headers available, don't think you can go wrong.

If buying down the road, I'd say that the Pfadt Tri-Ys will likely be the top dog.

When is that happening? Would be nice to see the price tag on a set.

I can't say to the quality of their product. But no, that's not what I said. I said if their product and somebody else's product produces the same numbers, at the same cost, with the same quality, I would buy from the other.
