Walk away and contact Brian (RarlyL8 on this forum) and he Willl set you up with a proper set of headers at a reasonable price.

you right but as we known obx is a low budget header. so as you can see its not Reddy to install it. there are a few things i Will do before installing it.
I Will go into the pipes with a small cam (hd) to check the weldings and slag an make it clean. when i mount the header i Will check en fix stress. in the pipes it looks better accept the place where the turbo fits. i do not expect it Will live forever. with in two year i Will afford a special one, after a motor rebuild.
I feel not cheated for this price. and there are people giving good comments for this header. but don't expect the world from this header. sorry for the bad spell,as i am a Dutch man...
I will post the movie.
Thanks for the comments
