Thinking about dropping in some long tubes

Im leaning towards OBX with the catted mids(I know I know but for the price you cant beat it). I will also be putting in a wideband. More than likely the innovate MTX line. Im doing this because eventually I want to run a supercharger...Quick question though where should I weld the wideband bung?

Re: Thinking about dropping in some long tubes

You'll want it as close to the engine as possible for the fastest heat up, but not so close as to only be reading from one tube.

Re: Thinking about dropping in some long tubes

So I have a similar plan for mine but no sc, anytime soon, just a cam, why is there so much negative on the obx headers...I'm not familiar with the brand and other than the cheap price I can't really see the difference from the almost 3x more expensive brands...? All I can find is that they are knockoffs but if you ask me everything is a knock off nowadays, to me there's no real original product just different versions of the same...

Nope from all the research I have done I'd go with OBX and call it a day. I don't have a problem buying American, but at double the cost china wins this time. Just remember to get the good mopar OEM exhaust manifold gaskets and don't use the ones that come with the headers.
