The Blox is a Skunk2 without Skunk2 name plate. Your stock one will do just fine as well.

I can think of a number of things I'd rather spend 300 bucks on before an intake.

Boosted already or is it still in the making? What parts do you have so far?

Would not doubt if they were sourced from the same Chinese company. Insider info. Back in the day when Skunk2 brought out the manifold and Tony Shagday was running the All Motor Integra. Devin and Mike were sales guys at Skunk2 when it was named Skunkworks. When Skunk2 moved to So Cal Devin stayed in San Fransisco, Mike moved with Tony down south. I hear Mike Switch companies to Blox, and probably knows where to source those parts from.

save your money or spend it on something else. your stock mani is good for as much power as you are looking at making, and just like sentry said, there are alot of other things you can spend that money on that will actually make a bigger difference.

and on a side note, i have known 2 people to both get that obx mani, and both had to have them re-machined to fit. for some reason they didnt fit correctly and needed extra work. this could be because they both got them off ebay, but you can never be to sure.

why waste the money?

stock intake and throttle body will make double the power you will be able to make with the stock rods.

you could save another couple hundred max and build the bottom end....
