^^^ lol

I have the Hotshot on my car. I have no complaints. I bought it before DC came out with theirs. I want the DC Header now. Why? I really do not know, maybe cause its cheaper...who knows. But you can't go wrong either way. Its like the difference between AEM and Injen Intakes. My 2 cents

neither...both dont give great gains whne you combine them with an Intake or exahust...get TRD or TPR...true 4-2-1 header

Well. TRD does not have a header for the GT. So that is not an option.

nobody has done conclusive dynos to prove which one makes more power or if either even make power. I'd say go with which ever one is cheaper.

if you search it's been gone over before. it basically cleans up the header to make it flow better. thats the easiest and quickest way to explain it.

nobody has verified this on a GT though.

If your going to turbo then why are you buying headers?
