Are OBX long tube headers good?

I found me some obx long tube headers and was wondering if they are a good brand to buy and was wondering if there was much of a difference between shorty's and long tubes.

I've never heard of them but looked around and see thier mostly on Ebay.

Honeycomb insert with heritage R/T emblem, BT Pistolgrip, Demolded, lots of parts painted TorRed and metalflake silver, a GSM CAI( off car now) , chilly air mods, and an AFe gone to research!

theres a few posts on them over on lxforums, those who have them do not have one bad thing to say about them. the only bad things you will hear are from people that do not have them.

I've seen them used on the charger. The only bad thing about them, is that their gaskets suck, no header bolts included, no o2 extensions included, and where the header meets the catback its the same size so you have to expand the catback to make it work. But for half the price I think it was worth it.

I am running the OBX long tubes on my car and am VERY impressed. Quality was excellent. The fit was great and I have no leaks what so ever. Did the install myself. I even used there gaskets. They fit up perfectly to my Magnaflow catback and only had to extend the driver side O2 sensor. No big deal. Well worth the money. I would defiantly recommend them and will use them in the future.

After hearing some more positive reviews, I'm getting tempted again. Last time I asked about these about 6 months ago I got a lot of neigh sayers. For $500 plus another $150 for ceramic coating can't beat the price!
