Buddy of mine bought a set of these the other day, have not seen them in person yet. I had never heard of OBX before, but they look like a SW copy-cat made offshore.
Anyone on here ever had a set and can share any details on them?

@Big Blue .. Can you move this to the 6.2 forum... I was apparently blind the day I posted this in 5.4...

I put a set of OBX headers on my 2005 5.4l and they were fine, the welds were pretty enough and the price was certainly reasonable for a stainless piece. Everything fit fine and I didn't have any leaks at the flange so I was reasonably satisfied. The only big thing was they added a 3rd O2 sensor **** that they didn't provide a plug for and the bolts for the flange it came with were just wrong.

I can say I've heard of OBX. Don't recall how or where. IIRC they were decent quality.
Ya there are a bunch of Corvette guys that run them, but I have never seen anyone run them on a Raptor. Curious what they look like when my buddy gets them. $950 is a sustantial deal and likely made in the same shop as the asian Stainless Works that are 4 months out to get..lol

Did your buddy ever get these installed? How was the quality and how are they holding up if so?

OBX has been around for a long time. I remember them making parts for the little import cars I liked in the 90s/2000s. I would assume the quality is just fine for a part made overseas (if you're into that sort of thing).
