GTS headers...
I want to but some headers on my GTS. I know that Greddy has some but you cannot order them yet. So i want to get the AMSS Headers, (because i cannot afford the trial), Does anyone have the AMSS headers? What can i expect out of the preformance wise? And where do you recomend i get them at?
Later. spineyes

TRD, TRIAL, AMSS and BFG make headers for the GTS. TRD would be your best choice. AMSS actually makes you loose hp. Trial supposedly has fittament problems and BFG is a no name that have never proved their stuff.

Get TRD

hey i thought ppl who got the TRD header said there was minimal and unnoticeable gains...is this false? That's the only reason I haven't picked em up.

TRD header doesnt give you more than 3whp gain. Trial is the only way to go, we just need a group buy.. Your talking about spending almost 875 with shipping and shit.. Thats 25% of a turbo kit...Im waiting...

You could probably talk them down to 700 + shipping. I talked my suspension system down from 2800 + shipping to 2300 SHIPPED. You gotta know what yer doin' when it comes to negotiating. Tell them you got a quote for 700, but the guy who quoted you can't go lower. Find another sourse or two and tell them 675 and 650. See who bites for business. They just price as the market goes. You can get it down if you shop around. Let us know.

So, I've heard Trial does the best gain; yet, it has fitment problems. Who wants to be the first to get em and let us know?

Also, in reference to power gains, anyone read the current issue of TURBO MAGAZINE. They tested the same 350Z on 7 Dynos and they all varied. Numbers ranged from about 235 to 280 whp. Pretty big gap. Check it out the next time your mom's buying groceries or your girl's picking out tampons. smile
