DC Header for the GT

do you guys think it's worth 250 for a DC header for the gt? I wanted to get a turbo but i also might buy a new car in the future but i also want more performance right now. All i have on my GT is an AEM Intake, and a hayame axleback. What else should i get beides turbo and nitrous to make a noticable difference? I did some weight reductions also. Thanks in advance guys.

Depends if your on a budget and how much performance you want.

TPR Intake! - Injens high end with AEM's low end and NO BOGGING!
TPR EXHAUST! - Exhaust made 10.5 whp peak and 32 whp at 6300 on my car!!!

Well, i'm pretty sure i'm not going to go with a turbo. I was wondering what you guys think about getting a header. Is it worth it? I want noticable gains..not just 1hp. I was reading an older post that they dynoed it 8whp on the gt from monkeywrench. thanks.

Heard the gains for the DC SPORT header were about 2whp. I think Monkeywrench had some other mods on there, too. I've heard around 2 or less and i've seen the chart. Wait for the TPR header to come out or save up some $$$ for a Turbo kit. thumbsup

even with 8whp, you're not going to feel that much of a difference. you basically have to redline every gear to see that 8hp...reminder, you're NOT adding hp, only free more air...
