i just bought an OBX twin loop muffler. I have heard good reviews about this muffler, but not many other obx products. Not sure if its all true, but I know there are people on other forums who have had some issues with their products. My advice is do what i did, research each individual product and see what people are saying.

Someone said in a previous post that the intake manifolds are pretty big and restrict you from getting a strut bar, and I have heard there are issues with the welds on the exhaust manifolds.

OBX is inconsistant. one person might get a great product from them and then the next one off the line might crack a weld within a month. you could view them as a good company with about 45% lemons.

everyone talks bad about OBX but i've never seen proof. my friend has had an OBX header on his car for a year and its been absolutely fine, lucky? i dunno maybe...

edit: i do know tho that the OBX intake manifold have a major problem with fitment. gota do alot of adjustments and its so bulky that u cant fit a strut bar over it..

OBX isnt that Outer Boundaries Crossing lol.

I also have heard mixed reviews about OBX. Go megan racing 4-2-1 Stainless Header, 165 free shipping

OBX is only good if you have no money to spend
