    Slip joints

    Anyone have obx headers with slip joints? How did you seal them at the slip joints?

    -I've used exhaust paste but it blows out of the tubing fairly quickly.
    -Also used some quiksteel on the front just testing if it would hold up to the heat. Lasted over a month until i took the joint apart yesterday.

    You could always try that muffler repair putty they sell at the parts store. That should be good for another month. LOL

    I understand your pain, I regret getting the obx.

    I used the exhaust putty as mentioned above and just header wrapped the hell out of it.
    But the 4-1 design doesn't work for me anymore. The headers hang entirely to low and even at a "comfortable height" they still drag and touch. Not that long ago I busted the bottom two pipes. I just got a flat plate tacked to it now, but I'm looking for pacesetters now

    Probably going to do the same. Could weld them, but if you need to remove them, it'd be a bitch
