    how terrible are the OBX headers?

    i've been looking at the OBX headers and wanted some opinions/thoughts from everyone else here who is using them?

    nothing shows up when i search so if this has already been covered, if you could redirect me to the other thread that would be cool

    i need decent ground clearance and or course i want more horsepower, on a bit of a budget so dont really want to buy kooks headers for twice as much in order to gain maybe 6rwhp, dont really care about appearance and i dont plan on having the car for more than 2 years. if i could gain 30rwhp with these, the Y pipe and my ASP under drive pulley i will be pretty happy.

    btw: i'm sure the OBX gaskets/bolts are crap too, i'm going to use stage 8 locking header bolts and some copper gaskets

    they look almost identical to the pacesetter headers but come with a catted Y pipe and they're coated for 500$ and i want to buy the headers that have a matching y pipe for ground clearance issues.

    so how do you guys like these?

    And remember, you are in CA so there are the smog nazis you have to take into account...unless you are willing to spend the time, effort, and money to put the stock exhaust manifolds back in time to get rid of the car.
