Headers?
You all think headers are worth the trouble?? Anyone know where I can one for a GT? What kinda gains should I expect? Will I be able to FEEL the difference??

It will be tough to get the Hotshot Header for less than $320 shipped. Try Titan Motorsports and ask for Bottle.

headers take engineering and good quality control or they will actually lose power - I would steer clear of generic ebay ones!

put it this way you can get the dc for bout 270+ shipping at option auto plus they are smog legal unlike hotshot headers. dc claims 10-14 hp so prolly like4 at the wheels butmore if it is combined with Intake and exhaust hope that helps!

I agree totally, when dealing with your expensive engine...that the 'generic' header could destroy...I would rather spend the extra hundred or two...then a couple thousand for a new engine. That would make me sick to my stomach if that happened, and i could have saved a couple thousand dollars if I would have just paid a few hundred more for a decent headers.

I might go with the E-bay ones...just to see. I got an E-bay Intake and it rocks..I like it better than the Injen one that I had. I noticed better gains. Plus all the DC headers are out of stock. thumbsup

I would've stuck with Injen since it's CARB exempt. I don't think the eBay ones are CARB legal.
