if you want performance...
Exhaust - TRD or Tanabe Super Racing Medallion (TSRM)
Intake - Injen CAI for gains in higher RPM; AEM for gains in lower RPM
Headers - Trial or TRD
Pulley - AEM Tru Pulley kit to quicken throttle response
Sway Bars
Springs/Struts
Lighter Wheels
Front and Rear Strut Bars

all of this is related to performance, not just hp gains. But for a great performing and handling car, this stuff would be key to top it.

10-13 FWHP or something... Go with the TRIAL header. I've heard more good things about that than the TRD header.

Trial added 11+ and performs a lot better than the TRD. But if you want official and do not want to void warranty...then TRD is the answer. Still performs just as good.

Does the trial header work on the GT engine as well or just GTS. The same question for the TRD as well.

So are you saying that it will not work? Basically what i am getting at is do they make one for the GT or only the GTS?

TRD, Trial, and AMSS are the only ones who make headers for the GTS.
Hotshots is the only person I have heard that make headers for the GT.
