Anyone ever use big block OBX Racing headers?

My 496 is done for my 71. all i need is a set of big tube headers to finish it up. I seen these on ebay for 300 bucks. Stainless steel and big tube, which i need. I tried regular cheapo headers and they wont cover up my ports. I would like some from stans but 650 bucks is alot.

Also has anyone used chevelle or camaro headers in a 71 big block 4x4? will they clear with a body lift?

I never heard of OBX so I googled them and it looks like they have alot of fitment issues with their stuff...
I would stick to the old saying " You get what you pay for " on this one or at the very least do some research on them..

Goodluck

Keith

$300 for a set of big tube SS headers sounds way too cheap.
I've found that Hedman makes a decent header for a decent price. Have you looked at what they have to offer?
