They are similar. A lot of poeple have the obx & a lot a have fwerk's header. Its up to you. I have the fwerks one. I like the construstion & the ceramic coating. Whatever you get you'll need a tune. Its also a good idea to get a stealth muffler too. For a header is doing to make a different noise tone.

For the price of obx it was a awesome buy. fit perfect only one mount needed to be moved for me. If you look on ebay there 220$ from some people with like 40$ shipping. check out my youtube channel you'll hear it and i got a quick little walkthrough.
Have fun its loud :)
