They are similar . Diameter of piping is different and the resonator on the OBX is 2" shorter. The welds on the OBX are great too, no fitment issues.

How do you think this will sound paired with an Ark Grip CBE? I am considering RTP or the Z1 HFC for my 11' sedan. In class at college right now with no headphones, so I can't watch the sound clip But I am looking for some TP's for the extra gain / grunt versus the HFC. But I do live in CA..... LOL

They'll boost the overall volume a bit, shouldn't be too much though. Living in California you'd better pass unless you know "a guy" or want to swap them out after every check.

I do have that friend of a friend of a friends cousin's COUSIN, yeah I know that guy. Haha but I am more concerned about sound wise. I know sound is all based off personal preference, but do you think it is just as loud as any other TPs or a little more tamed due to be resonated? In other words, I'll take something as loud or louder than the Z1 but not as loud as the berk TPs but subpar $400. So... Its either Z1 or these

Thanks.

Sound is great, no rasp and just some volume boost, regular non-resonated test pipes won't sound nearly as "smooth". IMO you'll like the added tone. And glad you know "that guy" lol.

If you have any videos of your exhaust before installing the Y pipe back, can you please please post them!

As an update to this, obx now sells dual resonated test pipes. Curious as to how they are. Cost was a bit higher though getting closer to $500. Too much for obx.

Thanks for the link, and they don't have the good counter-flow O2 port either, I think I'd take a pass

I agree. Pretty certain I'll just stick with fast intentions and welding a bracket for the OEM cat bracket to bolt to
