opinions on headers?

i have bbk shortys on right that installed a bit less then a year ago. i bought some stainless bbk longtubes and matching shorty h like a month or so ago and just have it sitting under my bed. i won it in a bid on ebay for a good price. my question is, should i save up to instal my longtubes or keep my shortys and sell my lt's. my car is pretty low and at the place im moving to this month i have problems driving up the driveway as it is. im pretty sure i'll scrape more with longtubes right ? or is it worth it and just keep my lt's? any opinions ?

hell no im not swapping springs lol. im not much of a racer so an extra 10 hp isnt much of a big deal to me. and im not going back to jeep stance lol. i still need more low as it is. i just got the lt's to make it louder. will it make it louder ? or will it be the same

I'll buy the lts and the shorty H. If you get rid of them, I think it would be worth it to keep em though

i think shipping would be too much. i would want at least just 550 for everything with the gaskets and sensors but shipping would probably suck

LTs would be super loud with LM1s.

I'm sorry you spent the time to install shorties, they're honestly pretty much a total waste of money. They don't flow any better than the factory manifold.
