I dont know whats bad with them, but the company doesnt have a reputation associated with quality. At least that is the impression I have gotten from people on this forum that have used or know people who have used OBX products.

What do those cams give you anyway? More overlap?

yer theyll hold the valves open for longer it was the only cams available to me in the uk
a few people i know have used them on other makes of cars turbo and non turbo and they seem to be ok if i have any problems i will let you all know ill hope for the best lol
to be honest looking at them the quality and machining looks spot on and the fit was perfect and the turn over in the journals really smooth and free

I would have gone with a slightly bigger turbo but it looks good! Wish I had the time/money/skills to start building a motor.
