The difference between OBX quality and SSI quality is not unlike the cheap Chinese waste gates vs TiAL waste gates. They work but fit and longevity is a crap shoot.

Each has its application. OBX may well do for most folks and with the economy tanking (in part due to the Chinese) is a necessary low cost option.
In response to that I applied for and was granted distributorship for OBX.
The irony is that the mega-stores on the internet buy at such huge volumes (ricer retail) that they can sell 930 headers cheaper than I can buy them.
Part of the reason P-parts are so expensive is volume; Porsche parts suppliers simply cannot buy at the reduced quantity rates granted the Ricers.
