Headers on a GT

Is it worth getting headers for a gt? If not what else could i get for around the same price? I want something that will help Performance. thanks

Well...headers will definately be a good investment...especially if you already have an aftermarket exhaust. DC Sport and Hotshot both make headers for the GT and if I'm not mistaken are both good for at least 5-7+ whp. The three first Performance mods I'd say to get are Intake, Header, Exhaust...then worry about some other stuff.

What kind of Intake, exhaust? I'm looking at getting a header for next spring, still not sure what kind yet. I've seen a few posts saying that TRIAL is putting out a header for the GT with good numbers.

as stephen already said..get the dc motorsports header or hotshot header for the celica gt.

if you already have Intake and exhaust, your whp gains will be evne higher than 5-7 whp. synergy thumbsup

Do you really think the hotshot headers are better than the DC sports for an extra 130.00. Are they worth it??

your 11:1 is why your GT likes breather mods. Stock GT's see little gains with basic bolt on's.

IMO, header on a GT is a waste of money, the 4hp gain you will get is not worth $400. 7hp or above gain on a celica is a pipe dream at best. Flame away I'm sure the rice boys don't see it that way.

I'd get the headers, I've heard the Hotshot header does indeed put out 5-7whp gains on a stock GT, atleast that's what the dynos say... but who belives dynos these days spineyes wtf
