Any header is going to be very LOUD.
You have to tweak them in order to get a good sound out of any exhaust set up.

I have the long tube header, not the one pictured. Ass said above final sound is determined by your exhaust setup

The svt header has been proven to be the best header. Many people run the obx., I think the quality of material ( the SS grade) is lower on the OBX.

Believe it provides more higher end TQ/HP while sacrificing low end power (IIRC). While the shift in power at the high end may be equivalent to the SVT the loss in low end is not.
