These are the ones you want.

I did install myself. Very easy.

Major water distribution.

Are drive showers needed/helpful on TRS drives?

The reason I prefer the Simrek showers is that the water inlet is on the side forward. As opposed to straight down. The photo below shows the difference. Some people are under the impression when the opening is straight down the water spinning from the prop is forced up. My experience is that this is not true. The prop movement is forcing water back and away from the boat. Just my .02.

I have showers from http://www.maxmachineworx.com/

Unfortunately they have NO info on their product on their website. I have been very happy with mine though.
