    depends on who you ask.


    i have an OBX short shifter in my mirage, it was cheap and easy to install. no issues whatsoever. its 2nd only to the RPW short shifter for mirages.

    1.8 guys always run the OBX 4-1 header....

    i would say its alright - for mirages.

    My friend put an OBX header on his Altima and it was a TERRIBLE fit.
    We had to grind out the flange bolts about 1/8" on almost every hole.

    Maybe it was a mixture of the altima being a not-so-aftermarket-parts-savvy car, and a mixture of OBX's monkey's sucking at welding. idk.

    I've heard different things about their d-series manifolds(intake and exhaust).
    Some good, some bad. I think it really just depends on exactly what part you get. 1 IM/EM will be an awsome fit, the next one could be complete crap.

    ^ true, but you need to dissasemble the LSD's before installation(or it's a good idea anyway).

    I read a thread on H-T a long time ago where a guy dissasembled his lsd and he was sure glad he did. Among other things(wrong torque specs on 3-4 of the 6 main bolts being one of them), the 6 or so conical washers were installed incorrectly. I.E. if it's supposed to be like ")()()(", or was like "))()((" or something... just plain wrong.

    I'm running their itr jdm 4-1 header on my build and I'm happy with it fir now, but one of my boys said he had one of their turbo manifolds on his boosted b16 and it cracked.

    I was wondering about their cams as well

    Well I'll be one tell you 1st hand in a bit if this is true, cause since I was a nice dumb ass and gave one of my boy's the lsd out of my type r tranny, I need to buy an lsd or else I won't be able to compete in the drift days out here this year, (it's a requirement) and I found the obx lsd for like $450 as compared to the phanton I was looking at for double the price
