OBX Exhaust Manifold Headers 03-06 Honda Accord 3.0L V6




I found this on e-ebay for 325.00 plus 32.00 shipping is it a good deal?

This actually seems like a good deal. OBX might not be the best company, but for the price it looks decent. I could be mistaken because my impression is that this would replace the Pre-cats. If they are, it looks like a good deal, but if it's a J-pipe replacement, I'd recommend Richie's J-pipe. Also, the ATLP J-pipe has shown good dyno results over at Acurazine. Richie's J-pipe showed great results on an automatic, but we have yet to see it's potential with a 6 speed dyno, which is being anxiously awaited

Search. Someone posted earlier that this doesn't fit well and other issues. OBX is garbage and search is your best friend.

I bought an OBX catback for my Integra. It was a couple inches too short, and I had to buy bigger hangers and they still popped off when I hit a big rock in the middle of my lane. I don't follow lifted trucks closely after that

Im goin to go with Richie's cat deletes. His J pipe fits so well that I know that the cat deletes are sure to be good too. I hate buying parts that are "made" for my car then having to fab them out to work. I could do that to start with if thats what I wanted...

I agree, nothing against whoever started the thread, but I haven't heard one good thing about OBX.

Sigh This AGAIN!?
Here it is, OBX might make 1 or 2 products that work, but I've heard/read way too many bad stories about their stuff. Someone needs to buy all these "headers" and melt them down as a public service to the AV6 community.
