how is this connection then made ? intermediate parts required ?

I know there's been lots of discussion on quality to price etc and I'm looking to buy a good set at a reasonable price
here's some examples

another question on the BB's, is ther a great performance difference in the with or without heat exchangers ? other then less weigth

the OBX
The OBX headers you have pictured look to be for a NON-turbo application. Here's my thread regarding OBX:
B&B Headers - got a god d@mn hole!
I've been running them for almost a year on a daily driver with no issues to report. I haven't even had to go back and snug up the exhaust port nuts....something I did at least twice with my B&Bs. I'm very pleased with the OBX, and can tell no difference in performance over B&B. Obviously the dyno would reveal all, but I don't have that data. In addition, I had no mounting/installation issues with my set. As with anything in this price range: YMMV.

Perhaps I rolled the bones and got lucky?
