You might want to wait on headers cause i believe Trial is coming out with one for the GT now! Much better gains most likely. Now lets keep our fingers crossed.

The hot shot HEADER (not headers) is the best bang for the buck power mod for the GT. I've seen dynos of +6-8 hp...

it is very good bang for the buck even though it is expensive. don't forget about NOS though...very easy to add a lot of horses for a relatively good price.

Nitrous won't harm your car if you maintain it...Use it the right way and it's actually good for your car... cleans all the crap in your engine...

nos does add good hp but the problem with nos is that you always have to pay for it and the power only lasts for about 8-10 seconds gt nos if you only race a lot or if you want to thumbsup

I would like to see some concrete evidence proving that statement to be true. Otherwise, I'll have to say that is a false statement.

If you maintain your car religiously, and you don't shoot your nitrous in first gear, or off every light, it won't do any worse for your car than running it at high RPM's for an extended period of time. It will add a little stress, of course, because it burns so hot. The solution- run full synthetic oil, and watch your coolant temp. If it ever gets above the normal range, get a coolant booster.

This is what i remember...

NOS in itself wont harm your engine. However, because NOS is 66% O2 compared with the O2 concentration of air, you need more fuel. When you dont add the right amount of fuel during NOS delivery, you run lean and you have detonation.

So if you have the right correct setup with adequate fuel, shouldnt be a problem right?
Correct me if im wrong

Many celica owners have sprayed up to 75 shots without any or major problems. You just gotta stay up on your regular maintenace.

Turning your car ON will put wear and tear on the motor. Of course there will be acclerated wear an tear on a motor if you use nitrous oxide or any other type of forced induction.
