    the welds don't hold as long as most, but they're not bad for the price......

            My friend has been using it on his eclipse for almost 2 years now. No leaks or anything. A word of advice, ditch the crappy gaskets for some OEM's. On the WG flange you can use the crap, but i would use some high temp sealant. Otherwise it can leak after a while. The material that the gaskets are made of do deform over time.

              theres 2 types on ebay, the cheaper one is obviously made of a poorer quality metal. I researched the 2 different obx manifolds for about a month, finally ordered one, and they were outta stock. aint that some bs

                Now this is interesting in its own right. Explain.

                  the first one is made of a cheaper, less durable metal that doesn't resist heat as well as the second one. The second one is made of aircraft steel that's used on aircrafts exhausts. the second one is gonna hold up to any temps you throw at it. It's also $105 more dollars

                    i think it would be hard to tell the diffrence between the two especially since the first doesn't have that good of a description. If you look at the other ram horn mani for other cars they're a lot cheaper. I think the price diff has to do w/ the fact they prob don't sell very many f series manis. Just a thought though. 92ex do u know of any websites that actually show the comparison between the two?

                    On top of that is doesn't actually say it's a ram horn design! The pic isn't working and it doesn't say at all what type it is!?

                      its kinda ramhorn. not completely, but for about 100 bucks more than a log, I'm getting the obx. The difference is in the metal, read the descriptions and notice 2 different gauges of steel are used. My dad was an aircraft engineer so thats how I figured out the steels differences. The fact that one is for the h23 and one is for the f22 is irrelevant, there interchangeable anyways. I don't know why the pic isn't working, but it looks almost identical to the cheapers one.

                        this is what i found on the diff between the two
                        321
                        Better resistance to temperatures of around 600-900░C is neededů321 has higher hot strength.

                        304
                        Typical applications include:
                        Aircraft exhaust manifolds
                        Expansion joints
                        Bellows
                        Furnace parts
                        Heating element tubing

                          Lmao, I bought mine without paying much attention. Good thing the only one that was available was the expensive one!

                            yeah. 321 is a much better aircraft steel.

                            yeah i couldn't figure out why one was more expensive, and that bothered me so i spent the time to learn. i was wondering which one you had, but didn't yours crack?
