    Do not buy!!

    Do not buy headers from racing parts depot on ebay . I bought a set of obx headers just to give them a shot since they were cheap and the fitment is horrible!!! I emailed the company about the problem and they say it should fit when clearly it doesnt. the flanges werent even close when the ad says (direct bolt in) . emailing the company also was like talking to a 10 year old . After 2 hours of cutting and fitting and drilling i have got them to work but it definetly isn't worth the hassle .. save up that extra 200 and buy the pacesetters or even the gibsons just don't buy the obx from racing parts depot.

    Good to know. I was thinking of getting a set for my Denali since they were cheap and stainless. Thanks for the heads up.
