  • 92 vs obx

    ok, just put a bid in on a used obx header.
    not worried bout looks or anything, cuz ill just use some high-heat paint
    and I figure the performance difference dosent really matter too much cuz anythings better than the 96 mani thats on there now
    I know that the 1st gen and the obx have different places for the o2 sensor, but I dont really think that will matter, what do you guys think?

    OBX flows better marginally better and looks better. Don't paint it, it's already bling.

        The only thing you will have to worry about is the o2 sensor size. If you have the small one you will need to buy the larger one and replace it. You can either buy the universal and splice the connector on or you can buy a 97+ sensor (i believe thats the year) and use that, it has the same connector.

            just curious... the OBX flows marginally better as in the difference is negligible?

              As in: It looks like it flows better, in theory. No one has ever compared them on a dyno.

                Haha! I won!

                Actually, I think I overpaid a little ($95 shipped). Because now, I'll have to buy new gaskets + nuts and bolts.

                I was going to buy the gaskets from SPS. Anyone know where to get the header-to-downpipe bolts? Can I just pick up a few from Home Depot?

                  that should come with the bolts and gasket....but if not go to a hardware store and make sure u buy grade 8 bolts, not the cheap crappy ones made of mild steel. i wouldn't know how well they'd hold up. gaskets, u might find those on SDA, i know sps has them, or just go to local parts store.

                  who did u buy from?
                  98 SL2m - Intake, Raceland coilovers, daily driver
                  94 SW2a>m - slammed and boosted 9 PSI - sloppymechanics.com inspired. Now owned by Importsdontlikeme.

                    The header-to-downpipe gasket is not useable.
                    There appears to be only one bolt.
                    There is no header-to-cylinder-head gasket.
