Thank you Mr. Helper... I know the OBX are Nismo clones, thats why I suggested that he purchase those but if he can find Nismos for a decent price like i did, he would be better off with the Nismos due to the higher quality in the product.The OBX headers are Nismo clones BTW, but check out doug thorley's too. I would probably buy DT if I was going to do it over again.
Equal length runners refers to the lengh of pipe that goes from each cylinder to the collector. Equal length runners are a nice thing to have. It may be more of a myth but I have not researched it myself.^
Dumb question, but what does that mean?
So does that mean it has truth to it or not? Not sure what you're trying to say. Is the power gain worth the $ and effort? 300+/- for the OBX doesn't sound bad as a price, but what about the amount of time and effort to install? Could I do them myself with lots of mechanical ability and mostly basic tools? If our manifolds already are decent is there much gain really?NCfronty: Your statement is tru on another members experience between the JBAs and the oem manifolds. He did the swap, took forever and in the end, he stated that he didn't really feel too much of a difference and the time needed for the mod was more then it was worth. He stated that if he didnt' get such a good deal on them, he would have just passed them up. I think he was a guy in CA and I think he drove a red KC that was lifted. His post was probably from about 1.5-2.0 yrs ago thou.

I would go with the OBX or the Nismos if I did headers. Either way thou, I would get them ceramic coated first to help with engine bay temps and possible rust issues.
