Default 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.

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.

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.
