Default OBX Header?

Is anyone familiar with, or have on their cruiser, an OBX header? I am considering when while doing the engine swap on mine. LMK what y'all think of it.

Low is your new engine a turbo? Not sure how well the OBX will fit on it, if it is.

If is for a N/A is a POS!!! ...I had it in my wife's car and only lasted 3 months, before it started to crack and leak at the welds. Then I took it out and re weld it, but the metal they use is so weak that in another three months, started cracking and leaking again

It is a N/A. It is the engine out of Scott Rigney's "blue flame".

So who makes a better header for an N/A Cruiser?

Unfortunately no one makes a long tube header (LTH) for the PT.
Everyone, and their brother, made one for Neon (same head) Kirk, AF/x, OBX, fastfabs, TTi, etc.

We did an accelerometer dyno run before and after installing a new style AF/x (with 'merge' collector) on a 2.0 DOHC Neon, ~10 HP in crude horsepower.

Again, I'm not sure exactly why the Neon headers don't fit the PT-
