Well since you live in California smog is a pain in the @$$, if you get LTs then you will need a new mid pipe also. And when it comes to that magic time of year when you have to smog you will have to swap out the whole exhaust system... I would say go shorty headers, and if you want no cats then go O/R H pipe, that way when you smog you only have to change the mid pipe, it will have the most ease to it... Now if you are willing to have the hassle around the time you need to smog go LTs with a shorty mid pipe.
