I searched for OBX headers, but didn't turn up a ton of info. One person said that they are basically a copy og the HS Header (don't know which gen). Another person pointed out that they don't have a fitting for the AIV or EGR.

Get the Hotshot or the AEBS and do not waste your money on any other header for the SR20DE. These have been tried and will give you the power you need.

After 10 months of use, here's what the OBX looks like.


I have been satisfied with mine. Top-end gains are nice.

they also have no flex pipe so you will probably bust them the first time you hit something
Actually i was surpirised all the nissan headers have some sort of device on them like the flex pipe or ball joint... all the headers I was looking at for my Integra had no such thing.. just straight connection, some were even one piece... I drove on mine for like 10 months with no problems

My hotshot still looks spanking new. Even my friend that has a classic with a hotshot header looks like brand new after 2 years after he cleaned up his engine bay!

I don't have anything against Hotshot... yet ;) This is why I recommend it.

honda's have a flex joint at the cat. it is just a special bolt that compressess a spring. the spring is what gives the flex. nissans have a solid connection at the cat so they need the flex pipe.

not the ones i looked at or had, which was a comptech... no flex joints just a flange and thats it
not that it matters since we all drive nissans, but i what i am telling you is that the honda "flex joint" is a bolt and a spring. you unbolt the bolt spring thing from the cat, and the old manifold. then when you put on the new headers you put the bolt and spring thing back on. the only other way to install the header would be to use your own bolt with washers instead of using the factor bolt and spring that you had removed. SE-R's are better ne ways, i dont had a flex pipe for my downpipe it works fine. but i would suggest keeping the flex joint if you still have stock motor torque mounts. these mounts move around, that is why you have a flex joint in the first place.

You know what...i didnt even notice this thread was from 2001. So far, nothing but good things from the gen 2 OBXs. We will just have to see how they stack up to the gen 5 HS. That will be my deciding factor in my purchase, once we get those dyno numbers.

My Pacesetter Ceramic coated i've had for 2 yrs with no cracks or problems. The only issue i've had was the flexpipe. It rusted with a year and i got custom one done. Side note, Pacesetter increased their price for that header to $399, they was in the latest JC Whiteny catalog. I paid $259 with shipping. Yikes!!!
