How many products does OBX make? A million! they don't specialize in anything, except mass producing products. Get a Greddy, Apex'i, or Comptech you'll be happy.

ceramic headers are the same thing as stainless steel headers performance wise, but ceramic headers will always look better and it won't turn into different colors like the stainless steel. don't expect a huge hp increase from it

Eh you really get minimal gains from headers, how much are the OBX headers?

i have no idea how much obx headers are, i was talking about headers in general, if you want the best performance headers i would suggest dc, 4-2-1 for low to mid end power or 4-1 for high end. as far as hp, anywhere from 6-12 depending on the brand name.

agreed with rage...
OBX makes quality parts... where they won't break, but they haven't put enough R&D into them to actually make good power.

By headwork what do you mean? Just a camshaft or vlave springs, etc...?

don't waste your $$. Best header for the $ would be DC Sports

Good luck!!

Yeah I am selling it, around 5k miles on it, still in great shape. If you're p&p the head, get a aftermarket cam, upgrade your fuel and ignition system and you'd get some noticealbe power, it's hard to say how much because there are a lot of factors...how good of a p&p job you get, what type of cam/fuel system, etc...

Make me an offer I can't refuse...pm me. I am not taking them off for about a month, I still have work to do on my turbo. It was on a 1993 Civic DX 1.5 L, and then I swapped in a '93 si motor so it's been on that. They are the ceramic DC headers...I gota pic of the top half of them (looking down into the engine) pm me if you want it.
