From what I've heard, just go with the long tube headers, they may be harder to install, but the shorties don't add any power.

It's all about the Smiles Per Gallon

I agree with PonyOnTheBeach. Long tubes generally add more power when sometimes shorties can actually decrease power depending on your Collector/Primaries sizes.

Long tubes are not "harder to install" I've done over 4 sets of long tubes and 3 shortys it's all the same and I've done them in my drive way, if it's your first time give yourself a sat or Sunday and a buddy to help you out.

Yeah, they are Correct, the Shorty's are very, very similar to the Stock setup already on your car. You wouldn't notice much of a difference.

Agree with the shorty vs longtube comments.

Did shorties once. Noticed to increase in power and no change in sound. It was some nice weight reduction for my wallet though.. That probably brought my 1/4 time down more than the shorties did..
