I would go with DC since they are about $100 cheaper then the HotShot headers, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the DC headers produced gains very similar to the ones that the HotShots produced.

I believe DC leads in the price to Performance ratio...

Header* tongue

HS gives a 1hp higher gain, but DC is $100 cheaper. So is that 1hp worth the extra $100 to you?

I've never seen a HS dyno but monkey wrench racing got a lil over 8 hp peak on the GT with the DC header.

Header are not worth it for the money simply for low gains.

$260 to raise your hp throughout the whole power band is worth it IMO rofl but eh depends on what you are going for.

so a 200 dollar Intake is worth it at 4 hp peak.

a 500 dollar exhaust that gives 3 is worth it.

nope.

and sometimes not "feeling" as fast can be a good thing. my car puts down enough low end that I dont "feel" lift anymore BUT I've actually got a whole lot more power. thumbsup
