What do you guys think? Price is nice, and dimensions sound reasonable...

Looks like an Invidia knock off maybe? Anyone have this yet? Dynos?

You can't beat that price! From seeing how big the mufflers and resonators are I bet it is a quiet system. I say you get it and post a review! Definitely a cheap alternative if you are looking for a CBE.

Frankly, I think most of the other systems are overpriced... $600 - $900 I can see, but most of these set-ups run between 1 and 2 grand, and a few go for more. That's pretty pricey, and it's not clear to me one is far better or worse than any of the others

That said, OBX is so cheap, I was a little bit suspicious of the quality... hence me wondering if anyone had it or was willing to try it. I just might get it if no one else tests it out first.

In the end most systems are Stainless Steel and robot tig welded. A reputable name is what makes the price sky rocket. Don't get me wrong, you do get what you pay for, but for an exhaust.......

I can't say to much, I waited for well over 7 months to get a Berk exhaust. I just knew what I was looking for in a CBE system. But for those looking for a cheap alternative and don't have the extra $$ because of this crappy economy,

I say go for it!

Most of the time the price that you pay is into the development and R&D of the product. Quality also plays a big factor.

Looks like a very quiet system. I'll probably pick one of these up soon... no need to ever spend more than $500 for an exhaust lol. I was going to weld one up out of pre-made mandrel bends if somebody didn't come out with a decent exhaust for a proper price.

People coming from Evo's and STi's know exactly how inflated exhaust prices are for the 370Z... I'm used to quality exhausts selling for under $600. I got a nice Invidia exhaust for the Evo X for under $400 IIRC... yes, it's not a dual, but it doesn't exactly cost 2x as much to produce a dual-pipe exhaust.

Exactly.

Will you be doing before and after runs if you pick this up? That would seal the deal for me (and many of us) -- I'm betting this one performs about as well as any of the others.

Actually, that's a good idea. I've been off my dyno-tuning stint of previous years because I don't have access to an AWD dyno for the Evo, but making a few pulls on the Z should be no problemo.

I'm not sure when I'd pick this up, though... probably this fall, so no results soon.

Hey, I am not making a recomendation about this exhaust, but I bought a CBE for our '91 2+2 off of eBay for $250.00 plus $30.00 shipping-new. It is absolutely awesome including the workmanship and welds. It is as almost as nice as the $1200.00 CBE on my TwinTurbo. Probably the best sub $300 I have spent on a Z.

Do you think there will be any fitment issues with this OBX? I know OBX has been around awhile.

It just worries me buying cheaper parts of ebay. I have heard so many horror stories of people buying off ebay and then having to modify the part to fit right. If they could even get it to fit right.

Don't get me wrong, I think the exhausts are way to expensive for the 370z. $1-2K is rediculous. Exhausts were $500 less for dual pipes with my S2000.

If someone ends up taking the plunge, please post up a review.

That is the problem with the demographics of the 370z and all other higher end cars in terms of aftermarket support. Since the retail and used car prices are higher, most aftermarket companies realize that a typical buyer would be more affluential and therefore willing and able to afford higher priced parts over say a S2000.

Once there are more 370zs on the road, maybe additional demand might lower prices eventually?

So true...every time I hear the Saclam I start to think...but then I have to keep telling myself it's for a 370z, not a Porsche, Ferrari, etc...

I think a few people have the OBX Y-pipe... maybe one of them can report on fitment?

On that note -- I thought one of the "names" had fitment issues with one of their exhaust parts.

I'm guessing this was welded by a robot in China, and that's the primary reason why it's so inexpensive...

That said, I don't think OBX looks any more or less reliable than any of the other guys...

EDIT: hang on... I don't see a 370Z system on their website...
