Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

I have seen it go both ways, seems it is great if you have a person who knows what they are doing and how to tune, but not a DIY project like too many people do

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

OBX is hit or miss (from hands on experience AND numerous reviews from other consumers), so I sure as hell wouldn't use their ITB's, but that's just me.

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

The OBX doesn't sound too bad, I had nothing but good experience with most of there products. If you like the skunk2 then go for it as well, the price is more but you won't go wrong...

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

everyone that had any type of obx intake manifold told me it was a pain in the ass to install and needed custom mods to work

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

You couldn't pay me enough money to run anything OBX on either of my cars , especially something as complicated and something that requires so much R&D and engineering as ITB's.

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

Everything has good results for someone, hell I am sure Meth and Coke have some good results for some people

Some people have good results with OBX products and lots of people have terrible results. Blake is probably one of the most knowledgeable people about preludes and he warns people not to use any of their crap in their vehicle. I would go with what he says...

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

I think a lot of people like to bash products. Any itb set up you choose will not be a simple bolt n where as the skunk2 pretty much will be. True that obx is not a very big reputable company but you have to start somewhere right? The bottom line is the people who say its crap without trying it you can't listen to them because they are all hear say. If you feel optimistic about it, go for it.

Bad reviews on Coke and Meth from people who haven't used them aren't enough to keep me from trying them, I have to see for myself how bad they really are.

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

Like I said before I never had any bad experience with obx products. Any one who talks bad about them Im pretty sure that they never use them just word of mouth... But like brodie94 said you gotta start somewhere. If you have the money to spend with no problem then go for the skunk2 products...

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

I've used OBX products before, and I never will again. Poor quality and ****ty customer support is all I ever got from them. I prefer to give my money for companies that do their R&D on their products instead of giving it to a company that just rips other companies designs off and markets them as their own.

But what do I know, it's all just "hearsay" I guess.

what product did you use? what was wrong with it? what did it damage on your car? pics? support your statement, not saying by any means you are wrong but i think a few of us would like to know exactly what your talking about.

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

I used their extended wheel studs...or I tried to. The quality of them was horrendous. I don't know what they were made of but when I threaded my brand new lug nuts on them, it was fine, until I went to the remove them a few days later. The threading like, literally came off with the lugs and I had to replace the wheel studs with OEM units.

Also, my first Prelude had an OBX muffler on when I bought it. I bought the car from a friend and he had put the muffler on about 6 months before I bought. About 3-4 months after I purchased the car, the the shiny luster on the muffler was gone, it was beginning to rust, and one of the welds was so ****ty, the muffler literally started to fall apart. Keep in mind this was in the fall, so there was no snow/sleet/ice/salt to help in the deterioration of the piece.

That's my 2 cents on OBX. Take it for what you will.

Who might that person be? Because there are plenty of people who will not use OBX products for a reason, their cams eat rocker arms why trust a company that makes those products for anything else.

Lugs was last year, exhaust problem was 3 years ago.

And I would never TOUCH their cams, I don't give a **** about hear-say, there are way too many horror stories out there about their cams.

So far their lugs, exhaust, and cams are crap and you are going to trust this company to make your ITB's?

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

and there you have it... see was that so hard? thats what i was talking about all along, give facts, not opinions. that is why people really ask questions. i just dont like people being harsh for no reason. what ever happened to lending a helping hand in the FIRST place?? not just coming out swinging with a f*** you attitude.... but, i too, would never use an OBX internal but, people on HT had positive results with the ITB set up? possible that it could be useable??? Idk, maybe.

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

I don't think it was really a "**** you" attitude, I just think it was tough-love in the form of "Don't be an idiot, spend a little more on quality products and skip the OBX crap."

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

If you're not going with boost, don't get the S2 manifold. If you're not going with tons of headwork, don't go with the OBX mani or with ITBs period. If you want an upgrade from stock, go Euro R or Blacktrax.

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

quality itb's cost a ****LOAD. seriously, you could buy a car. 700 bucks is a steal but i wouldnt use obx. at all. yeah, its something alot of people dont do, but unless you are going to track it, i wouldnt waste my money on itb's. alot of work and alot of tuning. if you want streetable n/a power from a dd, just go euro-r. right around the same price, and made by a fellow luder. who knows his ****, and the craftsmanship is second to none.

Re: OBX ITB or skunk2 intake and throttle body

I have some OBX headers stainless no rust and I felt a difference in performance as well.. I seen plenty of good results on the LSD diff as well... Skunk2 cost but at least you won't have a guilty thought about something breaking on your car..
