There is a lot of info about these ebay headers on this forum. They are not nearly the quality of the headers you would get from a reputable vendor here. One thing that is common is that the openings are one size, but when you look into the primaries, they are actually smaller. Also, the welds are not done well. You get what you pay for.

These look like Borla knock offs? The area where the primaries come into the collector look odd and awkward. I would rather dent some other headers than use these. It's too bad the obx's are BO'd. Too good to be true? It's just bent pipe welded together. They just aren't charging you an arm and a leg for labor and r and d. If chevy charged for research on every car they made there wouldn't be too many of us on this site.

Header vs. Headers prob is for one not two just sayin.

Size is way to small for that style of header...No real improvement imo

I good deal on junk is just that.

Take a look at Doug Thorley. There are others a few bucks cheaper but these are Ceramic Coated, Lifetime Warranty, and confirmed to be Made in the USA.
