Hothsot = GT
Trial = GTS

These are supposed to be the best 2 headers out there for our cars. I have seen Dyno on the GTS Trial header, no loss anywhere on the powerband, and 10hp gain to the wheels in the high end... if you have a GTS the Trial is a NO BRAINER (TRD header posted 3hp gains and torque loss in the low end).

Can't find any dyno on the Hotshot but I do know it has a better rep than the OBX, Hotshot claims 7-12hp gain in the GT. I hear rumors of low end torque loss (since it's a high flow 4 into 1 that makes sense) so I am throwing in AEM underdrive pulleys at the same time (75 bucks, can't go wrong there, and they are supposed to be a 3fp torque gain in the low end so it should make up for the nominal low end loss I heard about with the header, I hope, plus they will match my Red AIM CAI so it'll make my engine match hehe). I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

I was thinking about ordering the parts at a local garrage tomorrow morning. I think I am pretty set on getting it done, talked to some guys on another board and all of them were pretty jazzed about the hotshot.
