    Nope, I own a pair of OBX headers bought from eBay and I love them. No issues at all. I think I spent more than $180 though.

    They may not be tuned leangth headers, so they may not give as much improvement as a set from a company that employs engineers and the like to design the best header for a specific motor. Prob a great improvement over the stock manifolds though!!

    Nothing wrong with it at all. Both of my previous GTOs had Pacesetter ceramic coated headers and they did they job nicely from EBAY...and no rust. My current SS Camaro has SLP long tubes I bought from a guy for $400 brand new. They look awesome also

    I have never heard of that brand. But if they are stainless steel, then thats what I have heard is the best kind to have. But damn that is a super cheap price for stainless steel headers.

    Be careful with that eBay auction. They list them as also fitting V6 f-bodies. LOL.

    I dnt think there's something wrong with them.
    But be careful. A while ago was searching for "cheap" headers. I read the description item. And they were selling them separate. Not both. So at the end you had to buy the pair. And they weren't cheap anymore.

    I would go for obx. Since people here have buy them.

    I just put a set of OBX on my Goat. They looked great and the fitment was perfect. They have very thick flanges and really good looking welds. I highly recommend.

    i bought a set of stainless steel long tubes off ebay and had trouble getting it on the d-side. they were made by DNA, paid bout 180 for mine. the heat shield had to be removed and the tab at the top had to be cut off so the flange would clear. but other than that trouble. i've had no other problems with em.

    Me too on a 99 TA though.

    I bought them last fall and just did them 2 weeks ago.

    Great fit, good welds and they look killer.(almost too good to put under the car).

    Obx are kinda pricey now.
    I could be wrong but i remember I seen them for $200 or so. Now they are $300-600 that case I get pacesetters.

    good to hear that the ebay headers aren't junk. My dad and I just picked up a purple 2000 z28 for really cheap, just had a slp loudmouth 1 put on and were going to use the ebay header that I bought for my z28 awhile ago but never used since I got SLP longtubes. Only paid $100 shipped like a year ago for them, they are zomgk speed ceramic shorty headers. Prob the best bang for the buck or atleast in my opinion. anyways the car will be getting tuned once we get a k&n or slp intake. Will post the dyno's including the difference between that and my bolt on z28 with LT's.
