Re: OBX HEADER

Unless yours is extremely rusted (like mine) or with a hole of some sort or your looking to change up your exhaust, don't bother buying a header for now. Better off saving money for a hytech replica header. You can save money and grab the OBX off eBay for like a $100 less then what OBX is retailing it for.

Re: OBX HEADER

They match oem specs, basically a replacement part.

So don't expect any HP gains out of them, gains can be made with higher end products which cost more $$

Re: OBX HEADER

Like I said. They're worth buying as a replacement if yours are destroyed. Other then that, there's no reason to buy them. It's not going to give you 100hp more... a decal however will :)

Re: OBX HEADER

If you want something "better" then stock. The answer is no, these aren't better, they're exactly the same except the color.

Re: OBX HEADER

yea these headers and DC headers will not gain you any horsepower at all..DC might gain you +1 hp but its not worth it at all..for hp gain off of headers get a hytech header, but you will have to spend a gold coin to get one

Re: OBX HEADER

The OBX, DC, and Ebay headers are all nearly or exactly the same as the OEM part. Now, you might be able to get an extremely tiny HP gain with these but it will be far from noticeable. If your OEM 'header' is destroyed or you are just looking for something shiny to freshen up your engine bay then go for it. But if you are looking to get any performance whatsoever out of a header then this one is not for you.

IMO the Hytech Replica header is the best performance vs. cost header on the market. These can be found for about $300. So if I were you I would save just a little more and get something actually worth buying.

Re: OBX HEADER

Like he said you are not going to notice any real big gains from the OBX headers but they are better then my stock headers if you ask me. I bought some ceramic ebay headers and they started pilling off coating in one day and I had a leak.

I noticed that the car runs better at low rpms, just like DC adverts: "DC headers is produced for optimal horse power profit at low engine speed"

your butt dyno hasn't been calibrated in awhile, has it?
it's been proven on REAL dyno's that these headers don't perform any better than stock
just because you spent money on something shiney doesn't mean that they are ACTUALLY going to produce the affects that the advertisements say they will. hell, that's what the point of marketing/ad's are for, luring ppl in just to waste their money.

if they say that the car works better at low rpms and it does how that is misleading the customer? in my view, you guys expect to have serious hp almost for free. I dont. If Its better than the stock one, its enough for me atleast my car arent full racing car, it needs to work at the streets as well.. and btw you didnt show us any dony sheets that proves what you said

there is ALWAYS better and better ones... if you want the best then take your car somewhere where they make full custom headers from scratch!
if I have 230hp with dc header and I could have 235 (or so) with something else is it really worth it? havent noticed that the header would be the bottle neck yet...
like I said I dont have (yet atleast) that hard ass racing car that I would change working header to some better... IF I someday get new cams and pistons then maybe.. till that day dc works fine for me

you are arguing based on opinion. DC's worthlessness has been dyno proven for the H22. If you like your DC header, that's fine but out of the box it's nothing more than an appearance upgrade. Doesn't matter what size or route the pipes are, if the collector matches the stock diameter.
I did a full engine build and I initially had a DC header. It robbed me of major HP. The stock manifold went back on the motor, and it dyno'd the same as the DC. I spent $1200 on a custom header and it freed up quite a few ponies.

this is what I already said.

like I said also that there is dc header with 2" collector... and you guys talk about full engine build, I dont...you can manage with these tuning headers, I mean do you absolutely need crazy race header with stock cams and pistons with my mods it works yet well and Ive gain something like 33hp and I know that in sometime it comes the bottle neck.. but once again, Im not building a full racing car (yet)

Everything effects on everything... I think that you cannot gain real power just by changing one thing

and with naturally aspirated (preludes) those hp's will cost a lot!

Re: OBX HEADER

nobody has said anything how much that hydra tech header gives power with almost stock engine, of course it will help with serious mods but how about in much smaller scale..

with aem cai and exhaust mods, dont exept much... dont know really do you have to tune that small mods (unless you buy some crazy header)

and remember that you cannot just tune these newer preludes you have to get a piggypack program-thingy or obd1 ecu mod
