    don't downplay it. Yours has been worked by the Wizard of PA. WAY BETTER than an off the shelf boostlogic which has made sick amounts of power.

    Yes this is correct. The humans need to wake up and purchase the manifold to make proper rape power.

    I have OBX headers on my car. Paid 350 as well. I think they copy stuff because it looks exactly like the Kleemann headers. I've had them for almost a year without problems and my exhaust guy said they were good quality so we'll see how much longer they will last.

    This manifold is an identical copy/knock-off of Jon Volk's 666/Satanfold top-mount E36 manifold.

    Davidtm5 is using this OBX manifold and making 900whp with zero issues or cracking.

    Are you saying the OBX or the 666?

    I wouldn't buy that manifold just on the fact that it was stolen from Jon Volk, and copied. They both have been known to crack

    So although the OBX mimics the 666 it is worse quality? Makes sense considering it is a knock off.

    Johns manifolds won't crack if you have support brackets made. With 911 turbos I had to make an L-bracket or two to support the weight of the huge turbo hanging on it....and that was with B&B headers for the air-cooled ones.

    Yes I have heard the same. I wouldn't buy the OBX knock off when a person living in the US designed the manifold. OBX should be taken to court by Jon Volk.
