Because everyone is mad that they bought headers for $1200 and mine were $400 yet I put down the same or more power than other Camaros with the same mods.

Who is everyone? I don't give a crap what other people spend there money on. Iam not mad I spent over 1200 on my setup. Don't understand why all the obx header guys get so defensive on this topic. Like they have something to justify to others.

I personally am going with TSP or Stainless Works. I think maybe TSP becaue I like the price and I am from Texas! bwaahahahaaaaaaa

In the end it's whatever you feel best with. The difference between one brand or the other is prolly not even noticeable. Or is it?!

I'm curious what makes TSP's inferior?

They are 304 stainless, mendrell bent... ?

Fitment issues? They are similar in HP numbers to many of the others... I'm just trying to understand so when I do make the choice on which headers it's an informed choice. I'm asking mainly for facts, but opinions can be useful also.

We just find it important that newcomers understand that the only reason obx are listed on the bottom teir is because they are not expensive. I get upset at any misinformation. Feel free to have an opinion about obx, but to say the obx headers for 5th gen camaros are not of top quality is a complete lie

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.
