Headers or not? Thanks

Thanks for your help,
I'm just getting started on my '02 Sonic blue Mustang;
Dual flo masters, KN filter, halo lights, billett grille, a few neons, pretty nice Pioneer double din touch screen, with two TRX 12's 500rms each.
So i think i will try to go with paceSetter long tube for best performance, or shorty to save a little and maybe get a little extra.
Thanks

from what I've read here on the v6 forums you should go with longtubes. shorty's apprently don't do anything for the 3.8

naturally aspired motors need room to send exhaust gases. long tubes give more time to get out and gives less back pressure. that is what i was told when i started my exhuast....
