let's see:

material choice
material quality
weld quality
bend quality
material thickness
quality control
dimensioning

these are just a few that come flying off the top of my head. brands CAN differ severely. as for knowing anything about OBX specifically, dunno. i've seen their exhaust systems floating around ebay a lot, but i don't know anyone who uses it.

Nope, don't hit the oil pan.
Fit looks to be pretty darn good.
Welds are messy but thorough.
Design looks sound.
Bends are pretty nice and smooth.
Collectors look solid.
This is the long tube 4-2-1 header and for all 304SS at $155 I am pretty happy. Yeah, it would be nice to have ceramic, but that ain't gonna be for a price in this ballpark.
We will see the results when the final install is done in a few days.

Don't be confused by the people that can't tell the difference between this and the SSAutochrome POS with the oilpan thing or the f-'d up flanges that forced them to sell it with their own flexpipe for $199. There was a thread over at FJ where about 100 people chimed in without actually nowing what they were even talking about (there's a shock huh?)

yes you can, if by ECU you mean chip, but you arnt close to needing larger injectors yet that iv noticed, and i understand the cheaper the mods the mroe money you have for others, thats why i said the SVT header, its cheaper and just as good

I like OBX headers. I bought a race header and flex pipe combo from ssautochrome. The only problem I had was the rear part of the header was a little too close to the oil pan. I gained a lot of horse power and the header looks nice. Im happy. I only paid like 2 something for it all.
