OBX Headers?
 
I've seen these headers with catted (sorta) y-pipe on EvilBay. I read on other forums about other vehicles that they were ok, but the 500 bucks for longtubes makes me leery. Does anyone have any knowledge of them or if they are ok? I'm not a cheapskate by any means, but if I can find a part for cheaper and it works, I'm all for it.

$500 for longtubes??? sounds like a head ache waiting to happen man i dont ever trust cheap ebay parts if you buy them just dont be surprised if they throw codes or dont fit right etc...

I know it isnt apples to apples, but I put OBX headers on my dads corvette and the fit fine and have had no problems with them since :shrug:

Yeah but these headers say they will fit 07 08 09 i dont see them being able to fit both 3rd gen and 4th gen

Yea I was looking at those as well. I just needed a set of cats not the resonators they have. If you have emission laws then those aren't going to really work. I guess you can always get that kit and then go with some Magnaflow cats.

might be a deal 1 out of every 10 times they are bought...guess it's just not worth the risk

I've had the OBX LT on my Lightning for 3yrs, I bought them off ebay as well. Back then they were $375 shipped. Those headers are great, they are Dyna Tech knockoffs. The only suggestion I make is don't use the hardware that comes with them, get new clamps, gaskets and header bolts, got mine from summit racing. Other than that everything went on smooth and the sound is amazing!

BTW get the locking header bolts, so you never have to go back to tighten them.

I haven't heard nothing bad about them . I'd consider using them . You use to beable to get them for $375 . Not a bad price when you start seeing prices of $1000 + .

Exactly, it was a hidden little secret till the Lightning guys went on a group buy and bought 300 sets!!! Then prices started jumping, they come with hi flow cats now from what I hear, still a good deal at $500.
