OBX??? [:'(] please don't. they are crap. at least the header is. spend the money on good header. As for the OBX intake manifold and cat... I stand by OBX being crap.

As for hp gains... 20 at most before the NOS kit. so at MOST 160 w/ NOS.

I agree with Chimera, I haven't heard anything good about OBX. Spend a bit more cash and get a good product, even if you have to save up for a bit longer. You won't regret it.

I dont' know if you have heard of a Mini-me, but you might want to look into it before you drop all that cash on those mods just to get it to where you would be with a heap swap.

And 35Hp NOS kit? You aren't talking about those little CO2 cartridges are you?

Alright thanks for the help, but all these things i am getting are for free so its better than paying for it, lol.

Now i have the CAI and its installed. I am getting these shipped:

OBX High Flow Air Intake Manifold
OBX High Flow Cat Converter
OBX 4-2-1 Ceramic Headers
35HP NOS kit (sneaky peet or something like that, small bottle cause i got no room with the subs).

This is what i will buy later but i have a question about the exhaust system.
Apexi N1 Exhaust

I got the high flow cat, now when i get a cat back exhaust will that come with another cat? or does cat back mean it replaces everything after the high flow cat?

Another thing is with headers, high flow cat and a cat back exhaust thats everything in the exhaust line right?

sorry for the *** questions.

the header, cat conv, and catback exhaust are the only things for exhaust.
by the way, headers are really just headers to me. my cheapo $90 "performance" straight flow headers worked just as well as my friend's fricken expensive ones. or maybe i just got lucky
