Which to buy?!
I don't know which headers to get, so I'll leave it to the people at ecelica to choose for me! Hotshot or DC? I can get Hotshot for around $320, and DC for $270 (ceramic). Keep in mind I have a gt 5 spd. Thanks everyone! thumbsup

I have HS due to its proven performance. I'd still go with it until I heard a lot of positive reviews of the DC

proven > promising

I'm gonna go out on a limb & say wait till Trial comes out. Yeah, it's probably gonna be two to three times more expensive, but you know that it's gonna perform really well, probably better than both HS & DC, plus it'll be stainless steel thumbsup I'm gonna go with Trial, so I can be your guinea pig grin

if dc is ceramic, then whats hotshot made of, and whats the difference between the two as far as what there made of, is one better then the other, and is ceramic safe, will it last long?

HS is Steel I think . And I was allways under the impression that Steel will last longer then any other on the market .

Yep, unless you wanna wait around and see the dynos for dc headers, then it's anyone's guess smile
