    Gains w/Heads..

    Think I would make any significant gains installing better heads on a 06 GTO with headers, ORY, Intake, Exhaust, and tune? I dont plan on doing a cam, just wondering if anyone has installed just heads and made good gains..

    yeah, heads is where you make your power although a cam sure is nice and if you have the car tore down that far anyhow you might as well stab a cam in there. I would wait until you can do it and just knock it all out at once.
