You clearly missed the point... but it's ok.

One thing I learned over the years is get what u really want the first time. Never settle for something just because its available now or cheaper. You will never be happy with the product if u give in.

Another thing I learned is you get what u pay for. I don't think the obx stuff is stainless is it? That in itself is reason enough for me to go with a SW/Kooks/ARH header. Mild steel will rust and eventually leak. Then you will have to buy another set which negates your initial savings. If you have them ceramic coated you are again pushing the price closer to a higher quality header.

Just some things to think about.

For the price of SW, I got a set of OBX and a cam. No issues with the OBX. Go with whichever you feel comfortable with.

Obx = fat drunk chick at the end of the night you use them when dont know any better.

No i have never bought a set of obx but i have installed more than a few sets on jeeps and lx cars, I prefer the kooks or SW in that order.
