I Want To Order These OBX Headers But...

The company said the oil line doesn't come with it. Where can I find one already made that will work with them? I know their not the best headers out there but I only put very few miles on my car and I think the will be fine for me.

www.goingsuperfast.com is the cheapest for a pre-fabbed metric stainless oil line... He also sells the same headers with heat.

Thanks, I've been dealing with Albert, he's putting a kit together for me with the oil lines. He told me OBX stole their design but will match OBX price. I'm just waiting for the total price.

If anyone gets those OBX headers, please let me know if they are really 321 stainless. I want to buy them so I could hack them up for a T-4 flange and short waste gate dump.

According to user, kellcats, he had them tested and they are T321. And for the record, mine fit perfectly with no issues at install. Additionally, still no exhaust leaks...

IUsed a set of the OBX headers on a 79-930 engine. Turbo sits about 1/4" higher than stock setup. Had to build new turbo support bracket to tie it to the engine hanger bolts.
Bad set or bad manufacture jig for all sets. Made in China.

Just curious, were you also fitting a new turbo...like going from a 3LDZ to a K27 at the same time you did the headers? If so, when adapting a K27 to a 930, the turbo support bracket needs to be modified.

I can't answer that. It came up in another thread about headers and he indicated that he had them tested. That's all I can say.

Yes, changed the turbo to a Garrett GT30 when installing the headers.

Then I think the issue was the turbo change...not the headers. When I had B&B headers and switched to a K27-7200...I thought I was going crazy trying to get that god forsaken turbo support bracket to fit! I thought the K27 was a perfect bolt on mod. Then a few searches revealed that the bracket (if it's kept) needs to be modified. I slotted the holes on my bracket to make it fit. When I eventually went to OBX headers, the turbo bolted right up, because the bracket was already modified.

We tested them the way most everyone does in the metals business, X-ray fluorescence.
