OBX headers en route
hello all i just purchased a set of OBX headers for my 2005 dodge ram, pretty excited about it... my question is for header bolts i hear either stage 8 lockers or arp bolts. what is a general consensus of the better choice?

Stage 8 bolts best

Well i got the header in and while taking out the manifolds i found the annoy broken manifold bolt that was causing the leak. The quality of build on the headers was about 6 times better than i expected everything was was excellently tig welded together and fit up perfectly to the truck. there was 2 low points for this headers though, i think they sent me the wrong cross over pipe that run from the drivers side header behind the transfer case, it was 2 inches short to get around the transfer case so i had to cut it and weld in a 2 inch stainless extension, also on that same pipe the rear o2 sensor is is point towards the outside of the exhaust making it really weird angle to get at, but i cut the pipe spun it around to the correct position and every thing is working beautifully.

Pipes look great! Feel any difference?

yes sir, the obx is a 2.5 inch collector and i think it helped keep the torque band in the lower rpms because it is now a monster off the line.
