DC is 7.2 whp
HS is 10 hp gain, but I don't know if that's at the wheels or at the engine.

I thought DC sucked the big one confused I've heard nothing but good things about hotshot. I've heard that the hotshot puts down about 8whp.

HS - gains are the best for GT. I recently had mine installed and the power is noticeable...

yeah, read on the new import racer that trial will soon release the gt version. it'll probably do better than hs but it'll cost you $$$$ (like anything from japan; doesn't necessarily mean the best, though).

dc=STREET LEGAL 50-STATE carb
Hotshot=not street legal/for race use

but honestly...wait till someone BUYS the DC first...dyno it and see if there are no problems with them...then make your decision...

wait isn't hs only for the gt? so wat about the gts? can you use the hs on a gts? because i want the most hp outta the headers and hs is saying 10hp and dc is 7hp. trail is way too expensive.

from options auto salon "With the installation of a DC Sports header, you'll feel a 10 to 14 horesepower gain over stock as well as increased torque throughout the RPM band."

feel wtf does that mean. is it a guestimate.

Hotshot header will NOT fit GTS, nor will any other GT header. COmpletely different header designs.

And yes the hotshot header is street legal, it even has the O2 sensor in the exact same spot as stock.

for GTS get TRD or Trial...they both have 10-11 hp gained at the WHEELS.
