I did a little research on the web and it turns out OBX headers are made in China. That makes sense. For that price you knew they were either complete junk or made abroad. Seems like a decent part, but no way I'd ever buy them. Thanks, but no thanks. I do my best to avoid imported parts whenever possible (sometimes it isn't!). Whatever I'll buy will be made in the USA if I can help it.

no prob just trying to give you some options, and as far as complete junk they are very nice pieces and if you look at them and then look at jba they dang near look like copys. all the welds are TIG and the stainless looks flawless....headers for the new cars are way to much money imo.

I have to say a good pair of shorties are fine as long as you are not going to supercharge it especially over the restricting stock ones that have that crazy crimp in them. I used BBK shorties for a long time on my 308 with a 100 shot of NOS and worked great and were way better then the restricting stock ones. Any brand aftermarket shorties are better then stock headers. Also long tubes will hurt your torque if that matters to you but will give you more HP then shorties. I run MAC LT's because I went SC.
