That will be an awesome set up, I have heard it in person, and can assure you, you wont be disappointed.
If you can afford to go with long tube headers, they will be the most beneficial. They will give you big power gains, and a much louder and deeper tone. However, they do cost more than the shorty headers from the start, and the install is lengthy and difficult to say the least. If you go with this type of header, you will want to get a shorty mid pipe from the same manufacturer as the long tubes.
The shorty headers will still give you moderate power gains and a bit louder and deeper tone, but not to the extent as the long tubes. The shorty headers however are easier to install and are less expensive in general. If you go with this set up you will want a full length mid pipe.
If you decide to hold off on either header for the time being, you will still want to go with a full length mid pipe.
I hope this helps, and if you have any questions, feel free to get back in touch.
