Thread: 91 GTS header

  1. #1

    Default 91 GTS header

    I have searched everywhere online for a good quality header for my car and am unable to find one. Basically all I can find are eBay headers and I want something that will last and will have no issues installing. Are there good quality headers for this car out there?
    Thanks

    You get an OEM 3S-GE header imported for a true 4 to 2 to 1 exhaust manifold (two parts)... for like 5 HP gains. The problem is that you dump a ton of money into making a 5S-FE fast... and you could have just swapped to a better NA or turbo motor for the same or less and had more power.

    Okay thanks. I have looked into doing a swap and it is pretty big bucks from what I have found. And a lot of work. I'm looking into having the cams and head built. Ive got a pretty good idea on how much it will be to have the cams done and it's not a whole lot I just need to find a good machine shop that can advise me on the head. It's not going to be super fast but it'll be fun.

    So just to clearly state:
    Spending money on a 5S-FE motor is purely a labor of love as you won't get any major gains from any one thing

    Read this: Getting power from a 5SFE without forced induction it will give you an idea, but keep in mind it is an old post, so some manufacturers may have stopped making parts.

    Just based on the mild build that's basically the cost of a 3S-GTE from a 205 or 215, so from a part cost stand point it just doesn't make much sense to dump money into 5S-FE performance rather than 3S-GTE.

    He's right. Either way you'll be doing a new intake and exhaust to help the head and cam work breath better right? A 3sgte swap isn't much more than the head/cam work. You can get a good ST215 motor for around $900 with ECU/Harness. A custom wire conversion is about 400. For about $2500 you'll have a running 3sgte (sometimes less if you get good deals on the stuff).

    There are a few cats that have gone out of their way to make power on a 5SFE. One who doesn't post here that often and one that passed away, none who have posted in the last five years or so. Mr Turrari has gone to great lengths as a labor of love. Bruce eventually swapped a 3SGTE. I think at the end of the day no one has made more than 150BHP on one. And at that point they were well past the cost (not frustration) of a 3SGTE swap.
