The DC sports headers are like 260. You consider that too costly? Just wondering. Wouldn't it help with Intake and exhaust, though? I know it doesn't make much more with the other two, but wouldn't it have better low end than just i/e?

TRD or TSRM exhaust
AEM or Injen CAI
AEM pulley

do not get headers, they don't do anything.

yea i mean if your going to get everyhting then get it. but for cost of the Intakes and exhaust, you get some power, you get looks and sound. headers you just get some power. but if ure running out of stuff to do to your engine short of turbo and have some money then hell yea thumbsup

try www.tunermarket.com; there are a comparison site for import mods, and have a bunch of performance stuff from all the major sellers including 2kracing,optionimport, overboost etc...usually better prices than ebay...without worrying about shadyness...

you might also want to look at some of the sponsor sites in these types forum.

If you get an Intake and exhaust, then the header won't be a very good gain in hp for the money.

hey guys thanks for warm welcome, i been out sick and was unable to check the thread until today. sorry... anyways, i guess like most of you mentioned it's pretty good idea to get Intake and exhaust at this point. any specific brands that i should be looking for? i checked out this tunermarket.com site and looks pretty cool with all the price comparison. thanks for the link man... if you guys have any recommendation i'd appreciate it.

improve your high-end with the Injen CAI.

TRD exhaust is the 2nd most effective axle-back system.
TPR exhaust is the 1st most effective axle-back system.
TRD KAZUMA exhaust is THE most effective CAT-BACK system. (its not street legal)


DC or HotShot header dont do anything for the GTS. your best bet is to PORT and POLISH the stock header. (as Clos as done) thumbsup

Your first appearance mod should be the s2000 Antenna. thumbsup

I totaly understand the header part, but why is the pully useless. I had to get a new belt tentioner a while back and bought the AEM pully for my 2000 GTS since I was going to be taking stuff apart in that area anyways. I dont feel great results from it but I figured it would be a good mod to have since i was going to be working in that area. Price is cheap also!?????? Is it the lack of bang for the buck or does it make no diff in performance?
